“Slick high-finance melodrama and dizzying technical speculation lift Edelman’s SF debut, the first of a trilogy… Bursting with invention and panache, this novel will hook readers for the story’s next installment.”
"Edelman is writing about real people and real issues, in a thrilling, engaging way. And that’s rarer than it should be."
“Just when we thought cyberpunk was dead, David Louis Edelman bursts on the scene with defibrillator paddles and shouts, ‘Clear!’ If there’s any web more tangled than the World Wide one, it’s the Byzantine networks of high finance; Edelman intermeshes them in a complex, compelling series.”
“This smart, idiosyncratic blend of cyberpunk, libertarian entrepreneurship, and social engineering will, I think, stand as a seminal work of 21st century SF.”
“The Jump 225 trilogy is a must-read, an instant classic and a work of SF that will help define this first decade of the 21st century, and could cast a long shadow for many years to come.”
