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

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, […]

Beating Golden Compass Like A Dirty Rug

Posted October 27, 2014 By John C Wright

My beautiful and talented wife and accomplice is outselling Pullman’s rotted book. Hoo-hah! I vaunt. I jig with unseemly glee, making antic gyrations of my knees as I do so.

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 […]
