- "I particularly liked Nine Minutes in the Metro, especially the passage about adolescence when everything seems possible but is at the same time beyond control."
- "I found Equilibrium very subtle and thought-provoking. And very contemporary."
- "I liked your story, The Thirteen Hour Man, very much. I'm Japanese and I don't know how you managed to understand us and write about us so well. Yoshi is a remarkable man."
- "Equilibrium made its point almost subtly, but the more I thought about it, the bigger the hammer became. Really well done. The tension in Nine MInutes in the Metro was equally subtle, really drew me in, and with a great ending.
- The Thirteen-Hour Man was my favorite. An incredible job of showing us who Yoshi was. He's got superpowers he doesn't know he has. I also loved how many years the story covered so effortlessly, I don't feel like I missed a minute of his life even though I'd just been given tiny slivers of it. I'd know him if I passed him on the street."
