"The Analog series from Eliot Peper is simply terrific science fiction from the (very) near future—I loved all three."
-Seth Godin, bestselling author and entrepreneur

"Eliot Peper has accomplished the extraordinary, rendering our own world searingly visible through an imaginary future, and producing an entirely plausible fictional universe with its own logics, rules, and legends. Deeply plotted and bracingly narrated, Breach is a joy to read, a puzzle to consider, and a cultural mystery to solve."
-Eva Hagberg Fisher, critically acclaimed author of How To Be Loved

“A sharply rendered, wildly entertaining thriller speaking to the dangerous realities of our present.”
-East Bay Express

“A riveting cautionary tale about how the control of information could lead to new forms of democratic governance, or to accidental empires. Rooted in the current realities of the internet and social media, Borderless explores a near future in which our lives are shaped without our conscious consideration.”
-Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist
"Real and urgent... a thoughtful meditation on the ethics of power among those who broker it. Peper manages a great deal of complexity without sacrificing clarity or pace, and I read it all in a single fascinated sitting."
-The New York Times Book Review

“The technothriller novel that we need right now."
-Ars Technica

"A riveting novel exploring the dark side of feeds and geopolitics... an engaging, electric read that forces us to confront the state of the world today."

-Nick Farmer, author of The Survivors and linguist for The Expanse

"Peper has managed to pack a compelling storyline, emotional suspense, intrigue, and incredible tenderness into a story about love, discrimination and courage that's only a few pages long. As a lifelong blue myself, I'm not even mad. That's amazing."
-Berit Anderson, Editor-in-Chief at Scout

Cumulus holds up a mirror to ourselves, and shows just how scary the world could be right around the corner."
