  • Just finished The Conformity. I’m blown away. What a stunning, moving, brilliant series of books. Thank you.

    • Thank you, Todd, for reading it. I’m glad you went on the whole journey with Shreve, Jack, and in his own way, Vig.

  • I picked up the Incorruptables on a whim as I travel overseas a lot with work so read a lot on flights etc. It was sooooo good (on that trip it’s literary company were the latest offerings from John Connolly, Derek Philpot and Tom Wood), I read it in one go and had to buy the equally fabulous Foreign Devils immediately. Great work – can’t wait for the next one!

    • Hey, Paul. Very glad you liked them. I’m working on the last book in the series, INFERNAL MACHINES, if not as we speak, then currently. Thanks for your message! Safe travels.

  • I just finished reading The Twelve-Fingered-Boy trilogy for a FOURTH time. Dude, you fucking rock. I’m only 15, but let me say that of all the stories i have read so far in my life (and it has been a lot) that series has had the biggest influence on me as a reader and writer. It will forver be on the top of my bookshelf. Thank you so much man. You honestly inspire me to write. Thank you.

    • Thanks, Caleb! I’m glad you enjoy that book and I hope you do pursue writing. It’s a hard thing to do, but it’s worth it.

  • Hi John, I read the Incorruptibles a few months back (incredible – will be picking up everything else you’ve ever released in due course).
    I was just wondering, was the Stretchers’ naming inspired by the Theogony? There’s a line where Ouranos, having just fathered the Titans, refers to them as Stretchers, for they ‘stretched with a great recklessness to accomplish
    a huge deed, and for it retribution shall be laid up for the future’.

    Either way it’s a great name for creepy 8ft elf monsters, I was just curious.
