"The Offset's searing critique of anti-natalism could do for eco-fascism what Ninety Eighty-Four did for socialism and Brave New World did for eugenics."
"It is a bare-knuckle punch to the heart. Calder Szewczak made me suffer - brilliantly."
"The Offset is a prophetic, urgent, gripping read that throws into question what saving the world really means."
"The Offset shows how anti-natalism could also take a dystopian turn... even views aimed at reducing suffering can increase it if fanatics seize control."
"An honest, terrifying and sincere look into our future."
"A name to watch."
"Bleak, haunting and intriguing."
"Smart, compelling and absolutely of the moment. A truly elegant debut."
"A chilling evocation of a possible future."
"Very entertaining, compulsive & thought-provoking."
"This is a beautifully written, brutal piece of dystopian fiction that does not shy away from the issues we must face today."
"A powerfully told debut"
"These co-writers have produced a vision of a blighted world where everyone has to make sacrifices for the greater good, personal happiness being the first thing to go."
