Praise for J.M. Perkins’s work:
“With his restless imagination and incisive intellect, J. M. Perkins brings something almost wholly unique to the table of genre fiction. All of his work, even his fantasy tales and gaming excursions, edge into science fiction of a distinctive stripe — because his preferred science is the ‘dismal science’ of economics. His acute perceptions of the transactions and exchanges of everyday existence imbues virtually everything he writes with a revealing new perspective on the complex Über-Game that we call Human Life.” – Steve Dandois – Canyon Design Group
“One of our favorite writers…” -Robert Heminger – The Avalon Game Company
“J.M. Perkins is superlative.” – Brett Jackson – Creator, BEDTIME FOREVER
