• "Warner's second novel is a classic like his first one... glorious... powerful"

  • "A moving evocation of post- apocalyptic rave culture in the West Highlands of contemporary Scotland"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Prodigious powers of invention... marvellously dynamic prose... brilliant visual imagination... A greatly ambitious novel"

  • "Think of the inventiveness of Iain Banks filtered through the lurid lens of a David Lynch, with a soundtrack from Verve and Bob Dylan... These Demented Lands is fiction 'on the Outer Rim of everything'. Rave on, child"

  • "With a style that fuses poetic discipline with the riff-based scat of a hedonist"
