Brave New World. Fahrenheit 451. THX 1138. A Scanner Darkly. Bruce Boston's new novel, The Guardener's Tale, assumes its rightful place in this noble lineage of anti-authoritarian fables. His twisted love story between Rick Thorne and Josie Jimson is the perfect suspenseful armature on which to display some eternally perplexing ethical quandaries. As inexorable as fate and twice as surprising, Boston's novel will resonate long after its final sentence carries the reader down the memory hole.”  --Paul Di Filippo, author of Shuteye for the Timebroker


“A gripping dystopia wickedly extrapolated from our present. Boston brings to bear his narrative genius on this noir tale of a love triangle in a society gone mad, probing the way technology and science alter our reality. Transcending genre, The Guardener's Tale combines suspense and breathtaking plot twists with macabre humor. Involving, compelling, a masterwork.”  –Mary Turzillo, Nebula-Award author of “Mars Is No Place For Children”


“Now, for those who haven't read it -- this is a book to get. It's astounding in its simple complexity (read it and see what I mean), it's inventive, incredibly smart and builds great empathy with the protagonist. It's sci-fi horror fiction at its most interesting.”  --Rocky Wood, author of Stephen King, A Literary Companion
