A rather favorable review: http://www.rachelneumeier.com/2015/06/23/recent-reading-the-golden-age-trilogy-by-john-c-wright/ Here is one remark about the ideal reader which I thought worthy of note: The ideal reader: In order to be engaged by this trilogy, I think the reader has to enjoy complicated, ornate, nonstandard settings; technological extrapolation; and exposition. I think plot readers are going to like it better […]
A robot named Stobor makes this observation on File 770 (http://file770.com/?p=23180&cpage=1#comment-285609) Then there were the “Transhuman and Subhuman” essays.

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 […]
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 […]
