Editorial Reviews


“In AWAKENING Raymond Bolton presents us with an intricate

and interesting problem, characters you care for, aliens who

-are- alien, and a carefully-thought-out future.”

~ Mike Resnick


“Raymond Bolton’s genre shattering Awakening is a skillfully woven hybrid of science fiction and fantasy that brings cultural conflict to a whole new, thoroughly believable level that goes straight to the heart of what really matters.”

~ Matthew J. Pallamary – author of Land Without Evil and Spirit Matters.


“Bolton navigates through the plot lines and the mixed genres (Science Fiction but not exactly, Fantasy but not entirely, Paranormal but not completely) with the clear gesture of the conductor of a large orchestra. A new voice and author who is bound to grow a faithful readership.”

~ Massimo Marino, international award-winning author of The Daimones Trilogy


“it’s a grand debut. An ambitious and well considered SF crossover [that] breathes originality into the genre”


About the Author

Raymond Bolton lives near Portland, Oregon with his wife, Toni, and their cat, Max. He says this about his life: "I am of the persuasion life is too short to squander. I enjoy fine food, so I have learned to cook. I am endlessly curious about the world around me, so I read and I travel. I like people-who else is there?-so I talk and listen and try to understand what I hear. Over the years I've driven trucks, been an FM disk jockey, produced concerts, served as a mainsail trimmer on racing yachts, piloted gliders, written software, worked as a hair stylist and owned and operated my own business-all with varying degrees of success, but all have imparted a wealth of experience and taught great lessons. In the course of these doings I have had the privilege of meeting very accomplished individuals in the areas of music, movies, sports, technology, industry, finance and politics. Ultimately, all of this background comes together, struggles to find coherence and emerge in my work." His goal is to craft gripping stories about the human condition, whether they are set here or another world. He has written award-winning poetry and four novels. Awakening, an epic, was released in January, 2014, and Thought Gazer, an adventure and first volume of a prequel trilogy, was released on January 1, 2015. The third in the series, Foretellers, came out on March 1 , 2016. Triad, the saga's concluding volume, was released on January 1, 2017. Awakening was recently translated into Spanish and was released as El despertar - La saga de Ydron on July 1, 2015. Amazon has already listed El despertar as the Number One New Release in Ciencia Ficción. Triad, the saga's concluding volume, was released on January 1, 2017.
