“Nick Mamatas’ brilliant comic novel, Sensation, reads like an incantation that both vilifies and celebrates the complex absurdity of the modern world.”—Lucius Shepard, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards.
“The Majestic Plural, or Royal We, is well known—Sensation introduces the Arachnid Plural, the we of spiders, the ones that live inside you. The spiders care about you—deeply—and want to use you in a millennial war against certain parasitic wasps. No, I was wrong. The spiders only want to help. So let them in.”—Zachary Mason, the New York Times best-selling author of The Lost Books of the Odyssey
