“Nastily funny.” — Locus

“One of the few, the proud, the elite: a science fiction writer who can genuinely outdo the aberrant weirdness in contemporary headlines.” — Bruce Sterling

“Seriously cool.” — Gardner Dozois

“JG Ballard with a Texas twang.” — SF Site

“A hot up-and-coming sf writer whose prose is slick, post-Gibsonian, and funny as hell, like Neal Stephenson meets Hunter S. Thompson.” — Cory Doctorow

“The strangest, farthest out piece of fiction I’ve ever read.” — If Then Else

“Brown’s prose is effortless.  He pulls off fanciful imagery and dry humor with a distinctive flair.  And between the sidewise smirks, there’s enough oblique political digging to make Jon Stewart proud.” — Tangent

“Borges in a pop culture blender.” — Invisible Library

“Gonzo SF…Like a cross between William Gibson and Mark Leyner.” — Boing Boing

“Chris Brown is keeping cyberpunk alive with his wicked, apocalyptic, war-on-terror humor.” — RU Sirius
