Praise for The Mere Future…

"Clever word craft, poetic political satire and biting humor on every page." —Publishers Weekly

"Schulman injects wry political commentary and sly cultural satire into her intellectually dynamic plot with infectious constancy." —Richard Labonte, Book Marks

"Shockingly of the moment ... The Mere Future is set a few years hence 'when things are slightly better because there has been a big change,' and, as she always does, Schulman fashions a writing style that suits the setting ... [This] is probably Schulman’s funniest book." —Lambda Book Report

"The Mere Future is an intelligently written satire ... Excellently crafted prose, reminiscent of Oscar Wilde." —New York Journal of Books

"Schulman's humor is painfully sharp, her sarcasm sharper, and her intellect sharpest of all. If you play with her, she'll show you some things you probably didn't want -- but needed -- to know." —Liberty Press

"In The Mere Future, Sarah Schulman emerges as a unique voice in speculative fiction." —East Bay Express
