10 Seconds to Death : “…it’s filled with more sex and violence than novels tenfold the length. Author Gary Phillips knows how to pile on the action. This is definitely a homage to the spin rack novels of the 1970’s.”
Timothy Mayer, Z7’s Headquarters
The Anti-Gravity Steal: “Mr. Phillips has taken the men’s action adventure pulp genre of the thirties adding 21st century sensibilities and amping the energy level to 11. Doc Savage is the template for Ned “Noc” Brenner.”
