Signing in Saskatoon

So here I am at the Saskatoon Inn, due to go down in a couple of hours and take part in an Author Signing Coffee House as part of the Saskatchewan School Library Association Conference getting underway here, along with lots of other Saskatchewan writers: Rebecca Grambo, Byrna Barclay, Dave Glaze, Linda Aksomitis, Rod MacIntyre, …

Another review of Lost in Translation…

…this time at SF Site, and, alas, rather lukewarm. But at least she thought it was “capably written,” “brisk-paced”, had a “neatly-constructed plot,” and that “many readers will enjoy it.” So it isn’t all bad.

I must be a real writer!

A while back Andrea Bellerive, the daughter of a friend of mine, chose me (me!) to focus on for an Authors’ Fair at her school, St. Pius X, here in Regina. I popped by this afternoon to see the finished result, and was quite thrilled. (My apologies for the poor quality of this photo–I only …

Another review of Lost in Translation…

…though not technically a “new” review, since it’s a review of the hardcover edition. Nevertheless, I missed it until now. It’s by Don D’Ammassa: The only previous work I’ve read by this author was some young adult fantasy, so I was curious about this science fiction novel for more mature audiences.

A favorable blog mention for Lost in Translation…

…comes from Jethric’s Mess. Jethric summarizes the plot, then says: It’s a wellwritten book that surprised me in a number of ways. Willett does a wonderful job of bringing his characters alive for the reader, getting you interested in them, and having them do amazing things for all the right reasons. Having commented before on …

A new review of Lost in Translation…

…by Kent Pollard is up at the McNally-Robinson Booksellers site. Here’s the central paragraph: Strong characters and well designed aliens serve to make (Edward Willett’s) first adult novel a success. The S’sinn of Lost in Translation are believable and comprehensible, while providing a welcome change from humans in monster suits. The characters are focussed and …
