Nice Amazon review of Marseguro

A nice reader’s review of Marseguro showed up on Amazon today: Excellent world-building and well developed characters. Very enjoyable. If you are interested in the religious implications of genetic manipulation, the political problems with a theocracy, or the question of what you would do when faced with extinction, read this book. – William Howe He …

A nice review of Marseguro…

…just cropped up at Darque Reviews: “…a creative tale…Mr. Willett blends science fiction with heavy religious beliefs into a well-written storyline that’s filled with dramatic scenery and character detail. Sci-fi and fantasy fans should find this story full and entertaining.” – Kimberly Swan Not bad!

Nice review of Marseguro in Neo-Opsis

This review by Dr. Robert Runte has been out for a while (in Issue #13 of Neo-Opsis) but I didn’t see it until yesterday. Runte has some problems with the book’s pacing (he thinks it’s too slow to get going and suffers from a bit of info-dumpitis in the early chapters), but still has some …

Don D’Ammassa reviews Marseguro

The indefatigable Don D’Ammassa reviews Marseguro and isn’t entirely happy with it: Although this was well enough written, I found myself uncomfortable with elements of the story. The fanaticism of the theocrats seemed a bit forced, even though current events should have convinced me that their excesses are entirely plausible. I think my problem is …

First review for Marseguro

It’s from the Harriet Klausner, of course. Here’s the final paragraph of the whole thing: The regime in power is so xenophobic that it makes war on innocent men, women and children subduing colony worlds by deadly force. Marseguro is determined not to be conquered but if they use the only means available to stop …

She hates it, she really hates it!

Just to prove I don’t only point you to positive reviews of my stuff, here’s someone who really, really didn’t like Lost in Translation. On the other hand, she did finish it…so I guess I could say she found it “un-put-downable,” couldn’t I?

A nice mini-review of my story The Wind…

…turned up at G-Pop: The Wind by Edward Willett brought back memories of another ghostly tale by none other than Edgar Allen Poe, entitled The Tell-Tale Heart. At first you feel some sympathy toward this man who, once happily married and at home in his childhood home, finds himself alone, his wife gone and his …

A few reader comments for Lost in Translation…

…from Paperback Swap: “Great story about two empaths from different species who must work together to find common ground and avert interstellar war. Enjoyed the character development (human and alien).” “This book was a very good read for me. The characters were good and well thought out. The author took the homage of walking in …

A review of my children’s biography of Jimi Hendrix…

…has appeared in VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates), “The library magazine serving those who serve young adults.” My Enslow book Jimi Hendrix: Kiss the Sky is reviewed along with Karen Clemens Warrick’s James Dean: Dream As If You’ll Live Forever. Both are part of a series called American Rebels, for which I also wrote my …

An Andy Nebula blog review:

“Fun old fashioned sf. I didn’t like the main characters, but it’s flippantly cheesy.” – Goblin Wintercearig. Hey, I want “Flippantly cheesy!” emblazoned on my next book. I think it’s my favorite review quote thus far.

Does this count as a review?

From Andrea Miccaver‘s LiveJournal All Guts, No Glory: Dropped the dud like a spud and am now reading Lost in Translation by Edward Willett. A much better read. For one thing, there are flying monkey dog alien things. For another, someone gets skinned on page 10 and heads explode on page 18. There’s also this …
