Grand Prize Winner, 2015 Cygnus Award for SciFi and Speculative Fiction.
"In this stunning debut novel, James R. Wells has assembled a great cast of interesting and complex characters embedded in a well-planned dual narrative. James R. Wells' The Great Symmetry echoes the timeless social messages of truth, freedom and sacrifice embraced by science fiction greats like Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, and the author's own great grandfather H. G. Wells. A great read!"
- Chanticleer Book Reviews
"The Great Symmetry by James Wells develops a complex and satisfying future galaxy where the discovery of a potential boon to humanity must be defended by a diverse and feisty group of freedom fighters. A fascinating study of mega-corporate machinations versus freedom of information--the more things change, the more they stay the same."
- Sara Stamey, author of the Cygnus Award-winning novel The Ariadne Connection
"Mr. Wells does a wonderful job of beginning en media res
and jumping from the tense opening sequence into a media race
to propagate competing versions of reality throughout the author's well-developed setting. The theme of infoterrorism and the power of the media control gives us, like all great science fiction, a thoughtful what if
to consider in our own time."
- Robert L. Slater, author of Dante Rossetti YA Award Winner: ALL IS SILENCE.
"An awesome and very well written story." Alex Zabala, author of The Golden Scepter.
