“It’s easy to settle in and enjoy the sci-fi smorgasbord served up by Gregory Benford and Larry Niven. . .There’s a lot to savor. Fans of so-called hard science fiction will enjoy the descriptions of ionic scoop fusion drives and all the solar-powered gadgets put to practical use during deep space exploration.” — The Associated Press

“If you like hard SF with mind-stretching ideas both physical and psychological then you definitely want to read this book.” — Analog

“Bowl of Heaven has room to accommodate both the thrill-ride and head-scratching sides of its sub-tradition, and I think when the second half appears, this new effort by two of the Old Masters will hold its own just fine.” — Locus
