Nice Things Said Re: EWN

  • "Dan Wickett is serious about a good read. But the EWN email list doesn't just deliver his sure-footed reviews; it also brings you news and connections to other writers. Sign up now - he understands what readers want to know about books." Quinn Dalton, author, Bulletproof Girl

    "Mr. Wickett is that rarely heard from but best of all possible reviewers - the dedicated and knowledgeable fan. He writes clean-cutting and fresh reviews that represent a sensibility unspoiled by over-exposure to the biz of books, but deeply in love with them." Daniel Woodrell, author, Winter's Bone
  • 3.
    "Dan Wickett is a reader's best friend. Not only does he read and trenchantly review new work, but he looks back to books that deserve ongoing readership. I've lost track of the number of times he's led me to boks that I overlooked (or never knew about), and that were a delight. There aren't many reviewers I will let shape my library, but Dan Wickett is one." Erin McGraw, author, The Baby Tree

    Oh Dan. Sorry, but that is really funny.


    you should have said, "Too bad, I have an extra copy of the book I was gonna give to you."


    Dan -- this is why I never leave home without my disguise. I'm so sorry, but it really is her loss!


    No way! I can't believe she said that.

    Actually, I'm stunned by both of her replies.;-)


    People. They're the worst.


    Too funny & horrid, Dan. Like something out of a novel.

    And indeed, you could have said, "I have **five** extra copies I could have given you..."


    I can't believe you didn't get her address. She could have, like. 50 copies of the book winging her way in ... punishment.

    You know, I told my mom to be more polite. Sometimes she doesnt take her meds.

    I would have been crawling under the table, too.

    We love you, Dan!


    As I recall, Jeff did offer a copy to chuck at someone as needed ... ?

    I actually only have one copy of Ticknor. I'll just have to buck up and assume the store doesn't hate me since they had two copies of Garner on the shelf, one of Wells' Skin, and I swear they must read the LBC site - the three I mentioned were on the front table (minimum of 3 copies of each), and Ford's The Girl in the Glass was in the SciFi/Fantasty section, two copies. And many copies of Case Histories in paperback.


    I have set up my copies of "Ticknors" in a careful triangle on my desk. This is why I'm nowhere nearly as good as the LBC and the EWN. I'm worshipping the Illuminati.
