The Oregonian has some nice things to say today too about Percival’s Planet. More evidence that Portland is an awesome place.  Plus they still have an NBA team…unlike some other Northwest cities I could mention…

“What makes Percival’s Planet so irresistible is a more down-to-earth human focus brought to the story through fictional characters and events. Byers has the rare ability to break a reader’s heart practically from the moment each new character is introduced…a compassionate, sentimental tale of outcasts triumphing over impossible odds, pulled into ever-tightening orbits and intersections by fate, finding if not outright happiness, then at least a modicum of peace, however fleeting.”
