A Comment Overheard on Another Blog

Posted April 16, 2016 By John C Wright

Save for the flattery that overpraises an undeserving author, I must say this is very well said, concise, poignant, and shockingly clear and true. The words below are those of D. G. D. Davidson. http://voxday.blogspot.com/2016/04/500-more-votes.html#c2368806063696487832  D. G. D. Davidson ——————– April 16, 2016 1:05 AM There are three points of view that it seems I cannot […]

Reviewer Praise for IRON CHAMBER OF MEMORY

Posted April 10, 2016 By John C Wright

A Pius Geek reviews my humble work and judges it favorably: http://apiusman.blogspot.com/2016/04/review-john-c-wrights-iron-chamber-of.html F. Paul Wilson’s novel The Keep had impressed me growing up because it was a novel that had started out as Dracula and ended with Lord of the Rings. John C Wright has managed and even greater trick with his latest novel, Iron […]

Reviewer Praise for IRON CHAMBER

Posted April 8, 2016 By John C Wright

A Review of IRON CHAMBER OF MEMORY from BZ, a commenter over at Vox Popoli. I’ll take the opportunity to write a somewhat longer review of Iron Chamber of Memory.

Today I was asked by John Vance, son of Jack Vance, to write an intro to one of his father’s books, an omnibus of the TSCHAI books. A greater honor I find it hard to imagine. In other news, VINDICATION OF MAN is available for pre-order on Amazon, who seems to think it will be […]

I am Famous Now!

Posted December 7, 2015 By John C Wright

Mark Levin “The Great One” just read one of my columns on the air, thanks to Instapundit. Of course, he got my name wrong (John C. Cartwright) and he caught a spelling error I had made (‘come’ should be ‘some’). Ah, well. The price of fame. If you want to find a podcast of it, […]

A Kind Letter and a Progress Report

Posted November 24, 2015 By John C Wright

This is the second nicest letter a patron has every sent me. The first was too personal and too deeply moving to share, but the reader here (my boss, same as you) gave me permission to share this pat on the back. Mr. Wright, I have written you before in praise of your work, and […]
