    'Dowling's troubled hero, Tom Tyson is the captain of a sand-ship and one of the few authorised to travel across Aboriginal lands. Tyson, a future version of the Wandering Jew, has been imprisoned and released from the "Madhouse" at Cape Bedlam. His past is unclear, and Dowling implies that some of Tyson's earlier memories are not what they seemed — has Tyson been programmed after his "madness" occurred' (Colin Steele, SF Commentary No 77 2001, p.52)
