Classics of western literature av Berkeley Breathed

Now wait for last year av Philip K. Dick

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
Isaac Asimov

'Wonderful ... a heady mix of Flann O'brien, Douglas Adams, Tom Sharpe and Ken Campbell, but with an inbuilt irreverence and indelicacy that is unique - and makes it the long-awaited, heavy smoker's answer to The Lord of the Rings'
Time Out om Robert Rankin

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.
William Gibson

The three-legged stool of understanding is held up by history, languages, and mathematics. Equipped with these three you can learn anything you want to learn. But if you lack any one of them you are just another ignorant peasant with dung on your boots.
Robert Heinlein

'An urban myth. Like the dyslexic devil worshipper who sold his soul to Santa.' - Robert Rankin (Raiders of the Lost Car Park))

Eric Frank Russells "Wasp."

Jeg har ikke lest denne boken. Men etter å ha lest omtalen av den på så må den bare kjøpes inn.

Terry Pratchett omtaler den som den morsomste terrorist håndboken noensinne og med tanke på at den faktisk ble skrevet i 1957 så passer vel denne boken godt.

Boken harselerer også rundt byråkratisk "double-speak" og i omtalen dras dette eksempelet frem;

'For months we have been making triumphant retreats before a demoralized enemy who is advancing in utter disorder."
