"An intense and satisfying novel." -- Walter Jon Williams
"Wil McCarthy brings thought and insight to the realm of fast-paced, action science fiction. AGGRESSOR SIX is a taut, vivid adventure that never rests. A splendid debut for a bright light on the SF horizon." -- David Brin
"Gives first contact a fresh, inventive twist, and does a great job of creating alien aliens. Recommended. I look forward to seeing what McCarthy does next." -- John E. Stith
"A fine novel... from a writer who's going to be around for a very long time. This one is a calling card." -- Daniel Keys Moran
"I enjoyed it... Wil McCarthy is a writer to watch." -- Vernor Vinge
"A neat, action-filled novel. What starts out like Heinlein ends up looking a lot more like Haldeman. AGGRESSOR SIX is a satisfying debut." -- Gary K. Wolfe, Locus
"An exciting debut... an exciting start to a promising career." -- Fred Cleaver, The Denver Post
"One part STARSHIP TROOPERS, one part OUTER LIMITS-style psychological suspense... McCarthy cranks up the tension effectively. Recommended." -- Charles DeLint, Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
"A short, fast-moving tale og human and alien psychology. The exploration... is well done and fascinating. I like McCarthy's details. Not many authors can create truly alien aliens, but McCarthy appears to be one of them." -- Janice M. Eisen, Aboriginal SF
"A well-told tale that combines brisk action, intelligent conception of the aliens, and deeper characterization of the humans than is often found..." --Roland Green, Booklist
"Very well done. [The] headlong pace and rousing finale... belie what must be at heart a fairly cerebral tale. McCarthy has the gift. Watch for his next." -- Tom Easton, Analog
