Posted October 3, 2014 By John C Wright

Yard Sale of the Mind has a review of a short story by yours truly appearing in the first of a magazine I hope will spread like wildfire in the dry brush of lifeless politically correct establishment sciffy they sell these days. from http://yardsaleofthemind.wordpress.com/2014/10/03/review-sci-phi-journal-pt-1-overview-domo-ideal-machine/   Our culture used to be able to produce movies like […]

Reviewer Praise for LAST GUARDIAN OF EVERNESS

Posted October 3, 2014 By John C Wright

http://malcolmthecynic.wordpress.com/2014/10/02/review-the-last-guardian-of-everness-by-john-c-wright/ A reviewer named Malcolm the Cynic, no doubt a close disciple of Diogenes, pays me the finest imaginable compliment of buying the second volume: Great book, and I just ordered the sequel off of Amazon. New characters zoom in at the speed of bullets, and everyone is interesting. Azrael de Gray is one of […]

Reviewer Praise for ‘The Ideal Machine’

Posted October 1, 2014 By John C Wright

The maiden voyage of the SciPhi Journal has embarked with Issue #1, and Mr. Daniel Eness of Castalia House has reviewed it, giving it high praise indeed. According to the reviewer, even the weakest of the stories or articles provided food for thought, something not seen in science fiction since the 1980’s. I was honored […]

Vaunting

Posted September 25, 2014 By John C Wright

I read this comment by one Joshua over at Vox Day’s blog:  http://voxday.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-ignorance-of-irreligious.html#c7569555299514107814 When I was young they told me to be reasonable and negotiate and not resort to violence. I stupidly believed them, and was instantly beset upon by bullies who would push me around and torment me. I tried reason and truth, but […]

How to Decipher a Book Review

Posted September 22, 2014 By John C Wright

  Over at the Vox Day website, one Bextor Fenwick asks a really good question: I was looking to get my hands on a physical book of Wright’s. The only book they do carry is “Count to a Trillion”. But, the average review rating for that book on amazon is not all that great. So, […]

Praise for ONE BRIGHT STAR TO GUIDE THEM

Posted September 20, 2014 By John C Wright

Forgive me for repeating a reader’s praise of my work, but if you recall my theory which I recently posted that the proper motive for writing is not fame nor money nor the applause of crowds, but merely to touch the heart of that one reader one might never know who knows what your work […]

More on my favorite topic: ME!!!

Posted September 8, 2014 By John C Wright

A reader on Vox Populi passed along a rather nice compliment and a rather tentative speculation. I wanted to boast about the compliment like a vain schoolgirl wearing too much makeup, and then set the speculation to rest: My daughters played basketball and when they were winning they would not shave their legs or wash […]

Joseph Moore of Yardsale of the Mind had weighed and measured the merits of THE HERMETIC MILLENNIA, and, by some kindly accident or quirk of inattention of his part, overlooks the flaws in the work and praised the merits. His review is here: http://yardsaleofthemind.wordpress.com/2014/09/01/book-review-hermetic-millennia-status-report/ He says, in part: Whoa. I will assume you’ve read the […]
