More on my favorite topic: ME!!!

Posted September 8, 2014 By John C Wright

A reader on Vox Populi passed along a rather nice compliment and a rather tentative speculation. I wanted to boast about the compliment like a vain schoolgirl wearing too much makeup, and then set the speculation to rest: My daughters played basketball and when they were winning they would not shave their legs or wash […]

Joseph Moore of Yardsale of the Mind had weighed and measured the merits of THE HERMETIC MILLENNIA, and, by some kindly accident or quirk of inattention of his part, overlooks the flaws in the work and praised the merits. His review is here: http://yardsaleofthemind.wordpress.com/2014/09/01/book-review-hermetic-millennia-status-report/ He says, in part: Whoa. I will assume you’ve read the […]

Reviewer Praise for COUNT TO A TRILLION

Posted August 29, 2014 By John C Wright

My books seems to have caught Mr Moore over at Yardsale of the Mind when he was in a good mood. He begins as follows: Nutshell: This is a good book. Go buy it now, and get a couple copies to give to unsuspecting friends. The large pile of books I bought last year has been […]

Architect of Aeons Cover

Posted July 28, 2014 By John C Wright

My next volume of my Count to the Eschaton Sequence is scheduled to go on sale, according to one source, in April of 2015. This is not the official announcement from the publisher, so it is possible someone is jumping the gun. Cover below the cut. Personally, I think this is great cover art:

A Message from my Editor: Last Call for Charity

Posted July 22, 2014 By John C Wright

Below are the words of my editor, Castalia House, concerning the charity drive for Stillbrave, and my own drive to sell my humble work: Last call for charity As I mentioned when we announced the book, a substantial portion of the first month’s sales revenues (approximately half), will be donated to Stillbrave, the children’s cancer […]

Reviewer Praise for AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND

Posted July 9, 2014 By John C Wright

The Rolling like Sisyphus has given my work high praise indeed in what he says is the world’s shorted book review. I will quote the whole thing: http://bbq22.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/the-worlds-shortest-book-review/ Just as with movies, I don’t review books much in this space, and by “much” I mean not at all. I think I sort of slammed Ulysses […]

A Sympathetic Review from Vast, Cool, and Unsympathetic

Posted May 15, 2014 By John C Wright

or, Vaster Than They Previously Appeared Mr. John Markley pays my latest book high praise: I liked The Judge of Ages quite a bit. The central premise of the entire series is one of the more intriguing ones I’ve run into in recent years, and Wright continues to do interesting things with it. We learn […]

Posted May 13, 2014 By John C Wright

Paul Di Filippo at Locus Online gives my book very high praise indeed.   In this installment of his far-future adventure, which blends flavors of Ed Hamilton, Stephen Baxter, Doc Smith, Jack Vance, E. R. Eddison, C. S. Lewis, Jack Williamson and A. E. van Vogt into a unique and generally tasty mélange… I go […]

Reviewer Praise for Awake in the Night

Posted May 12, 2014 By John C Wright

Here is a review AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND. http://charltonteaching.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/brief-no-spoilers-review-of-john-c.html   No spoilers. I bought this novella having seen the recommendation from Adam Greenwood: http://www.jrganymede.com/2014/04/14/awake-in-the-night-land I fully agree that this is a really, really good book; indeed it is good in a way and at a level that I found almost bewildering. The level of […]

Atlas Shugs and Reads My Theory

Posted May 7, 2014 By John C Wright

There is a survivalist and Objectivist website called SHRUGGING OUT PODCAST much taken with the Evan Sayet theory I wrote about not long ago. There is some talk of chickens and farming until about 8:45, which is a noble calling, to be sure. He discusses the title of the essay until about 14:30, not noticing […]
