William Gibson said, "Greg Bear's _Blood_Music_ is perhaps the only other novel to have dealt so unflinchingly with the paradigm-shattering possibilities of a functioning nanotech. If a science fiction writer's job is to conceive the inconceivable, Goonan has arrived with an immaculate version of the traditional toolkit -- and the nerve to use it hard."
Lucius Shepard wrote, "_Queen_City_Jazz_ is hands down the best first novel I've read in the genre in the past 10 years."
The New York Times said, "A first novelist of enormous talent and energy...she grounds her apocalyptic vision in a few short, finely detailed scenes that reveal how personal failings can become writ large in the great events of history."
