Praise for A Hundred Thousand Worlds:

"For all its acrobatic wit and outsize charm, at its heart this is the love story of two everyday heroes — a mother and a son — who, like their author, possess the superpower of storytelling. A Kavalier & Clay for the Comic-Con age, A Hundred Thousand Worlds is a bighearted, inventive, exuberant debut." — Eleanor Henderson, author of Ten Thousand Saints

"With enthralling characters and tons of heart, this read (much like a good con) has something for everyone." – Bustle

"Proehl has done an excellent job of integrating all of the story lines and creating memorable characters to populate them…The story is deeply satisfying and will delight both comics fans and general readers."– Booklist (Starred Review)

"A tribute to the pleasures of fandom — as well as to the special connection between a mother and her only child…Equal parts great American road-trip narrative and coming-of-age novel, this brilliant story from a debut novelist is a treat for the diehard nerds and fans among us." – Refinery29
