"...succeeded where so many others have failed.... respectable both as science fiction and as mystery."
|Tue, 1987-09-01||Death Tolls||FOSFAX||September 1987||Timothy Lane||
"There is a great deal of light humor scattered about the book, and some fine suspense.... I definitely recommend this book."
|Thu, 1987-10-01||Death Tolls||Grab Bag||Issue 7||Rita McConville||
"Stith adds superb technological detail to a classic whodunit. This novel should appeal to both SF and mystery fans."
|Sun, 1987-11-01||Death Tolls||Science Fiction Chronicle||November 1987||Don D'Ammassa||
|Tue, 1988-03-01||Death Tolls||Mensa Bulletin||March 1988||Tom Elliott||
"Stith draws upon his background in the Air Force with NORAD, and at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland."
|Sat, 1988-10-01||Deep Quarry||FOSFAX||October 1988||Timothy Lane||
"A worthy addition to such delights as Memory Blank."
|Tue, 1988-11-01||Deep Quarry||Journal of Mind Pollution||November 1988||Irv Koch||
"If you're looking for a way to spend an afternoon or evening with a nice interesting book, this is a good one."
|Sun, 1989-01-01||Deep Quarry||OtherRealms||Winter 1989||Chuq Von Rospach||
"[Deep Quarry is] a strong, interesting, satisfying mix of comfortable themes from two genres that rarely seem to mix this happily."
|Wed, 1989-11-01||Deep Quarry||OtherRealms||Winter 1989||Dean R. Lambe||

|Sun, 1989-01-01||Deep Quarry||Erg Quarterly||1/1/1989||Terry Jeeves||
|Sun, 1989-01-29||Deep Quarry||Denver Post||29 January 1989||Don C. Thompson||
"Watch for Stith's next book."
|Wed, 1989-02-01||Deep Quarry||Rave Reviews||Feb/Mar 1989||Dorothy Renko||
"My favorite kind of story--a novel that starts small, then slowly builds in momentum until it fairly explodes with excitement. Deep Quarry is intriguing, mystery/science fiction at its best."
|Wed, 1989-02-01||Deep Quarry||Drood Review of Mystery||February 1989||Ed Blachman||
"Stith's writing is good."
|Wed, 1989-02-15||Deep Quarry||Library Journal||15 February 1989||Jackie Cassada||
"Successful blend of sf and hard-boiled detective fiction."
|Wed, 1989-03-01||Deep Quarry||Locus||March 1989||Carolyn Cushman||
"A fun cross-genre fling."
|Wed, 1989-03-01||Deep Quarry||Science Fiction Chronicle||March 1989||Don D'Ammassa||
"Intriguing, often amusing.... Light-hearted fun for mystery and SF fans alike."
|Wed, 1989-03-01||Deep Quarry||FOSFAX||March 1989||Joseph T. Major||
"What makes this all the more amazing is that it is written under the conventions of a hard-boiled detective novel--only it had to be science fiction--and it is good at both."
|Sat, 1989-04-01||Deep Quarry||Mensa Bulletin||April 1989||Tom Elliott||
"Science fiction with a sense of humor."
|Thu, 1989-06-01||Deep Quarry||Isaac Asimov's SF Magazine||June 1989||Baird Searles||
"I let a couple of John Stith's SF mysteries go by without checking them out.... If I'd been a little faster off the mark, I could have turned you on to a good thing earlier...."
|Thu, 1989-06-01||Deep Quarry||Magazine of Fantasy & SF||June 1989||Orson Scott Card||
"Sense of wonder story-telling at its best, with enough danger to keep me reading long past my bedtime. Come on. You've been good. You deserve to read Deep Quarry.... Stith can do it every time."
|Sat, 1989-04-01||Deep Quarry||Analog||April 1989||Tom Easton||
""[Deep Quarry is] bright and breezy, flip and fast....
|Sat, 1989-07-01||Deep Quarry||Aboriginal SF||July/August 1989||Janice Eisen||
"A fun romp."
|Sat, 1989-07-01||Deep Quarry||SF-Gids (Belgium)||July 1989||Patrick Van de Wiele||
"A fluently written, absorbing and action-filled novel. I also enjoyed the humor very much, which balances the suspense and makes the book even harder to put down."
