'Bears comparison with the best of Philip K. Dick's paranoid alternate-history fantasies. It's beautifully written and undeniably powerful'
Financial Times
'Osama is an ingenious inversion of modern history: Osama bin Laden is the central character in a string of pulp novels allegedly written by one Mike Longschott. The terrorist crimes exist, in this novel, in a different realm ... Excellent, evocative and atmospheric'
Christopher Priest, award-winning novelist and author of The Prestige
'An awesome book, dark, twisty alt-universe terrorist noir'
Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of Zoo City
