  • Copper Cylinder Award (winner, The Skids, 2017)


“If readers enjoyed the first novel, they will find much to enjoy [in Thread War] as well. . . . Tweens and teens with non traditional tastes in relation to sci-fi will likely find themselves engaged in the lives and hardships of Johnny Drop and his team of Skids (and, of course, Wobble and Krugar!).”
Canadian Review of Materials

“Fast, fun, and moving. Thread War is an excellent follow-up to last year’s The Skids, winner of the Copper Cylinder Award.”
