"A tricky, evil, deep, and remarkable novel by one of America's finest writers.... It is not merely one of my favorite books (although it is certainly that); it is one of a tiny handful of modern novels of which I am in awe."
--Neil Gaiman, author of "SANDMAN"
"This delicate, insubstantial web of Alden Dennis Weer's memoirs acquires a solidity and a timelessness which may well make it one of Wolfe's most remarkable works."
"--SF Site"
"[Gene Wolfe's] first fantasy novel, "Peace", may be his finest."
"--The Encyclopedia of Fantasy"

Praise for Gene Wolfe:
"Gene Wolfe is the finest writer the science fiction world has yet produced."
"--The Washington Post"

"Gene Wolfe is unique. If there were forty or fifty of this first-rate author--no, let's be reasonable and ask Higher Authorities for only four or five--American literature as a whole would be enormously enriched."
"--Chicago Sun-Times"
