Double Review of WALLS in Locus

The January Locus arrived in Ohio, amidst the largest daytime snowfall in, like, forever, with two reviews of The Walls of the Universe. First Paul Witcover says, "It's a scrappy, character-driven multiversal romp that stands on its own... but also tips its hat to classic time-travel paradox tales...." and "Melko is not an especially graceful writer but he is an efficient one, and he knows how to build suspense and drive a narrative forward."

Gary K Wolfe says in his review, "In the end, The Walls of the Universe... is as compelling as it is unchallenging, and exactly the sort of thing you can hand to a non-SF reader with confidence."

I'll live with those assessments. ;)
