"Land/Space is an interesting experiment, occupying the space in the Venn diagram where "prairie fiction" and "speculative fiction" overlap. Dorsey and MCCrosky had to define the boundries of those two fields in order to figure out where the overlap lies and what belongs to it.... Dorsey and McCrosky have made interesting and insightful choices, both in where to set those boundries and in the stories that fit within them.... Land/Space demonstrates that sf can thrive in prarie soil." - James L. Cambias, New York Review of Science Fiction
"Land/Space is another interesting and successful Canadian anthology. Dorsey and McCroskey set an ambitious thematic goal for themselves, and they reach that goal with a diverse and smart selection of stories. Recommended.." - James Schellenberg, Challenging Destiny
