Reviewer Praise for AWAKE IN THE NIGHT

Posted January 14, 2015 By John C Wright

Best title of a book review ever: Book Review: Awake in the Night Land, and Why I Was Late for Work This Morning Mr Moore over at Yard Sale of the Mind is the exactly the type of reader most authors wish in vain to please: a man who ‘gets’ what your story is about on […]

Three Spots in the Top Ten

Posted December 29, 2014 By John C Wright

An anonymous character on the Internet posted his Top Ten for 2014! I am pleased to see Larry Correia’s name there, as well as my own. And ‘D.B. Jackson’ is a cherished acquaintance of mine. http://derekthornton71.blogspot.ch/2014/12/my-top-ten-fiction-books-of-2014.html I doff my hat to you, Mr Thornton, and will aim to please you again in the coming year.

Reviewer Praise for CITY BEYOND TIME

Posted December 22, 2014 By John C Wright

More from the same reviewer, Keith West: http://adventuresfantastic.com/futurespastandpresent/visiting-the-city-beyond-time/ City Beyond Time is a combination short story collection and novel. The setting is Metachronopolis, a city at the end of time controlled by the Time Wardens. They manipulate history for their own ends. This is nothing new in science fiction. Poul Anderson’s Time Patrol stories are […]

Mr Keith West of Amazing Stories has an amazingly kind review of my work: http://amazingstoriesmag.com/2014/12/small-press-book-review-book-feasts-seasons-john-c-wright/ Here is the review, which I reprint in full, in order to flatter my bloated ego. This week I’m reviewing a title that’s seasonal in nature, although the seasons it deals with occur across an entire year rather than a […]

A Feast of Reviewer Praise for Feasts & Seasons

Posted December 6, 2014 By John C Wright

Perhaps these reviews will persuade you to read the book. My normal shamelessness as a capitalist attempting to sell a commercial product fails me when I read praise as fulsome as this. I assume some friend of mine wrote it under and assumed name, or a close relative or something. But I pass them along […]

Reviewer Praise for UNEXPECTED UNLIGHTENMENT OF RACHEL GRIFFIN

Posted November 20, 2014 By John C Wright

The reviewer here, Peirce Oka of the delightfully named Dogma & Dragons,  had the good taste to like my wife’s book: The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin is not a book to be read at funerals. Within the first chapter or two you will begin cracking up, holding back tears of laughter, and all your […]

http://dogmaanddragons.wordpress.com/2014/11/05/book-review-the-judge-of-ages/ Intelligent compliments and intelligent criticism about JUDGE OF AGES from Mr. Oka. If there are two things Wright writes well, they are long action sequences, and humorous, intelligent dialogue. The Judge of Ages plays both of those strengths to the hilt. The first half of the book is a long action sequence, peppered with humorous, […]
