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.

Brilliant posthumans Ximen del Azarchel, suave and snobbish, and Menelaus Illation Montrose, earthy and stubborn, continue their […]
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 […]
