  • “[A] thoughtful look at a fundamental change in the nature of human reproduction” – Gardner Dozois, Locus
  • “I’m astounded by this story, by its elegant, thoughtful thoroughness” –Amal El-Mohtar, Tor.com
  • “Reproductive rights, personhood, our culture’s puritanical views on sex, religion, cloning, and so many of the other conversations connected to these topics. Fischer avoids preachiness […] and instead uses all of this to explore what it means to be human” –K. Tempest Bradford, io9
  • “This is a particularly effective story with a SFnal idea embedded right in its beating heart. Each character is excellently rendered – some in but a few strokes – but all seem real and alive” –Bob Blough, Tangent Online
