A Hall of Mirrors served to identify a major new talent who lived up to his seeming promise with the critically acclaimed novels Dog Soldiers (1974, National Book Award), A Flag for Sunrise (1981), and Outerbridge Reach (1992). "Stone's position as a leading novelist has been well earned for the skill with which he imbues the novel of action with moral and political dimensions" (Stringer, 646).
