Writing about Douglas Thompson’s cross-genre delight Mechagnosis, Ros Jackson at Warpcore SF says:
There are some things I’ve come to expect from Douglas Thompson’s writing: ambitious ideas, a willingness to experiment, and a commitment to challenging the reader. Even so, Mechagnosis is more wtf than usual . . . This is a densely-written story, only 144 pages, but it’s nevertheless a very deep consideration of machines, memory, and our lack of control over mechanisation . . . Mechagnosis is clever, if a little off the wall, and it left me with lots of interesting things to ponder.
