Posted July 31, 2015 By John C Wright

The Vacant Forever Village

Posted February 27, 2015 By John C Wright

I offer this as a vignette for my readers. It is a scene that was removed from VINDICATION OF MAN for reasons of space. Whether any fan of the work will find anything to entertain him, I do not know; which is, of course, a second and stronger reason why it was removed. I proffer […]

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, […]

Posted April 24, 2014 By John C Wright

1 It was not the being dead that I minded, it was the hours. No one ever calls me up during the day, and most people decide to wait until after midnight, for some reason.  I am a morning person, or was, so meetings in the still, dark hours lost between midnight and the dawn […]

A Glimpse of Somewhither

Posted April 7, 2014 By John C Wright

Dear readers, the claustrophobia of time has not allowed me the leisure to write a All Saint’s Day Eve story as is my wont, so instead I proffer for your reading entertainment the opening chapter of SOMEWHITHER, which should have enough elements of the eerie to serve for this day. The novel is unsold, unpublished, […]
