About the Book.
“The Rain Artist offers us a glimpse of a mad-hatter, horror show of a future that feels all too possible. Foster is a more soulful Philip K. Dick, as focused on the inner lives of the troubled, colorful characters who inhabit this novel as the high-concept, adrenaline-fueled mystery that will keep you turning the pages.”
—Benjamin Percy, author of The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding
“… an otherworldly, Atwood-esque dystopia.”
—Michelle Hart, O: The Oprah Magazine
