"It's here that John Preston brought together his talent as a genre writer and his lifelong commitment to healthy, fearless gay pride. Read these novels for the delicious entertainment and for a reminder of how far we have come as a queer tribe." - Philip Gambone
"The Alex Kane adventure novels expand the boundaries of family constructions. Alex, his young lover Danny, and Joseph Farmdale, his late lover James's father, unite to exact justice for hate crimes directed toward gay men ... Preston's theme in these works is literature's most enduring: the conflict of good and evil - this time with homosexuals being the good guys." - Jane D. Troxell
"The books provide pleasure on several levels. They acknowledge the harsh world in which we live, and they appeal to our need to think someone is standing up for our rights. They embody a set of values that we can emulate because of their continuing validity. ... The books provide pleasure on several levels. In a vision of the way things could be, gays and straights thus work together to make a better world." - Drewey Wayne Gunn
