Here are some of the great things people have said about my books!

“Walton has brought hard sci-fi roaring back to life.”

—Craig DiLouie, author of OUR WAR

“Paired with relentless pacing, an action-packed narrative, and a cast of interesting characters, Walton’s fluid writing style and tightly constructed plot produce a virtually un-put-down-able read. Tonally the love child of Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain and Aldiss’ SF classic Hothouse, this is a page-turner of the highest order.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Fast-paced and engaging, this had me rapt from beginning to end. A surprisingly vicious, timely look at the line between humanity and its environment. Beautifully done. I am eating a mushroom omelet as revenge.”
Mira GrantNew York Times–bestselling author of Feed

“David Walton is one of our very best writers of science-fiction thrillers, and The Genius Plague is a triumph from first page to last.  This one will stick with you.”

“Superposition is a fine blending of high tech science fiction and the mystery novel, a concept that Isaac Asimov might have come up with were he alive today.”

Impressive and often brilliant
– Kirkus Reviews

A stunningly imagined adventure saga written with an assured hand.

– SFReviews

With Quintessence, David Walton proves that winning the Philip K. Dick Award was not a fluke, but a harbinger of things to come.
—Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author of the Oracle Trilogy

An utterly stunning work of imagination, a slipstream counterhistory set in a fourteenth century that is as audaciously imagined as any work of science fiction.
—Rosemary Edghill, coauthor of The Shadow of Albion


High-intensity human drama set in a thoroughly imagined and highly plausible future.
– Book Review, Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show

A very tangled human story about young love, societal biases, and the almost inevitable and doomed tide of violent men
– Darwin’s Evolutions magazine

“A fast-paced SF-thriller with a very human heart.”
– Elaine Isaak, author of The Eunuch’s Heir

“An enthralling near-future scenario where body styling has become an art form and where computer hacking has progressed in a chillingly believable direction. What I love about David’s fiction is that his characters are firmly grounded in a social context. In Terminal Mind, the family and interpersonal conflicts are just as intriguing as the threat to society, with outcomes that are just as uncertain.”
– Nancy Fulda, assistant editor of Baen’s Universe

“David Walton’s Terminal Mind is a fast-paced thriller that slices across the landscape of a darkly imagined future.”

“…a gritty, fast-paced, page-turning read”
– Ian Creasey, author of Silence in Florence
