Reviewer Praise for ARCHITECT OF AEONS

Posted May 14, 2015 By John C Wright

Reviewer Dave Hallquest gives the nod of approval to my latest humble offering: Against vast worlds of intellect, what can mortal man do?  http://superversivesf.com/2015/05/10/architect-aeons-review/ John Wright takes on a fantastic ride though time and space, showing us wonders and terrors. My principle issue is the one I often have with John Wright’s work: I wanted […]

A reviewer is disappointed in my efforts: http://secritcrush.livejournal.com/tag/pathetic%20puppies In Wright’s hands Queequeeg remains firmly a noble savage with no depth of characterization at all. One person of color in the story and that’s what Wright goes for. That’s how the Pathetic puppies increase diversity. Diversity, eh? Discuss. ADDENDUM: a reader brings to my attention links […]

Spoileriffic Reviewer Praise for ARCHITECT OF AEONS

Posted May 1, 2015 By John C Wright

A review by Ben Wheeler: https://millennialking.wordpress.com/2015/05/01/architect-of-the-aeons-intelligence-unbound-and-unrestrained/ Mr Wheeler describes this discussion of my book as “A dark carnival of spoilers” and he gives away the surprise ending, the surprise middle, and the surprise opening, not to mention the surprise in Chapter Three, so I very strongly urge and recommend that no one read this review […]

HMS Mangled Treasure: The Rescue of Mr. Spaghetti

Posted April 29, 2015 By John C Wright

My charming and talented wife has an announcement and a bit of a boast. Whenever an authoress gets the cover illo of a magazine, her street cred among authors goes up, and she regains lost sanity points (SAN) lowered during the creative writing process or accidentally viewing a shoggoth. Those are the rules both in […]

Reviewer Praise for PARLIAMENT OF BEASTS AND BIRDS

Posted April 20, 2015 By John C Wright

High praise indeed from Jeffro’s Space Gaming Blog https://jeffro.wordpress.com/2015/04/20/a-few-comments-on-john-c-wrights-the-parliament-of-beasts-and-birds/ (a) I’m not necessarily right in the sweet spot of his target audience and (b) I’m not one to just flat out gush over every single thing that he writes. With that out of the way, let’s talk about his Hugo nominated short story, “The Parliament […]

A Taste of Things to Come: The Somewhither Cover Art

Posted March 13, 2015 By John C Wright

Here is the preliminary cover art for SOMEWHITHER, my crosstime kitchen-sink action fantasy and anti-Dan Brown novel, due out later this year from Castalia House. The artist is Jeremiah Humphries, who merits a round of applause. If you read the book, you will understand why I am so taken with this picture. You can see […]

Review of Architect of Aeons

Posted March 10, 2015 By John C Wright

Publisher’s Weekly has this to say: Wright continues his latest space opera (following The Judge of Ages) in this galaxy-spanning extravaganza with nods to the Odyssey, Shakespeare, and Japanese legend, as well as classic visionary and military SF. Brilliant posthumans Ximen del Azarchel, suave and snobbish, and Menelaus Illation Montrose, earthy and stubborn, continue their […]

Reviewer Praise for ONE BRIGHT STAR

Posted February 18, 2015 By John C Wright

This happens to be my favorite tale, for personal reasons, of anything I have written. Russell Newquist publishes a favorable review, which I here share in part. http://russellnewquist.com/2015/02/one-bright-star-guide/ John C. Wright is one of – if not the – best voices of our generation in science fiction and fantasy. And last year was a banner year for […]
