"Erik T. Johnson delivers a magnum opus of staggering proportions and epic concepts of literary strangeness . . ."
"YES TRESPASSING is "one of the best, most beautifully written collections of this or any other year . . . "
"Erik T. Johnson is writing at a level that all authors, new and veteran alike, should aspire to. Because what Johnson has achieved with YES TRESPASSING is nothing less than absolute greatness."
--From THIS IS HORROR UK review of YES TRESPASSING
I am a Speculative Fiction writer from Old School Brooklyn, NYC. Below, I've listed a bunch of authors whom various readers and critics have compared me to. If you like ANY of them, you may be happy to read me. However, all who enjoy me seem to agree these comparisons are for general comparison only, and that my voice is unique. I am humbled by that emphasis, and hope you agree.
The following list of writers serve as a sort of general guideline to the literary areas where my work successfully falls (according to actual readers, not me-- kind of like, if you like Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, you might like Tom Waits sorta thing):
"Mix of CHUCK PALAHNIUK with SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE."
PHILIP K. DICK,
THE COMTE DE LAUTREAMONT,
Further, almost everyone seems to really like my neo-noir, very-weird detective stories, all featuring Martin Box. I plan on writing a full Martin Box book in the near future. At the moment, I am writing the 1st of a 7-novel YA series; an adult, speculative fiction novel; and various short stories.
