Editorial Reviews

Review

Prompted by his detective's instincts and the photograph of a woman who seems familiar, January begins his search for the reasons behind his existence. His quest takes him down numerous paths: there's a beast lurking at the periphery of this, Robert Porter's alternate reality.
 
--Ellen Tanner Marsh, New York Times best-selling author

"J. Conrad Guest has taken the heartbreak of sexual betrayal and turned it into a romance-fantasy ... Readers will not be able to put it down."
 
--Current Entertainment Monthly, Ann Arbor, Michigan

From the Author

In preparing this edition, I wished to maintain the integrity of asmuch of the original text as much as possible, not only to show where I was inmy life twenty-five years ago, but also to show the progress I've made as awriter and a stylist.

The changes are minor, mostly to do with formatting and structure. Iresisted the urge to add or revise narrative, with a very few exceptions - whatcan I say? I'm a perfectionist and never could refrain from tinkering, which iswhy I rarely revisit my novels once they go to print. I can always find ways toimprove a text; never perfect, I can only achieve "closer to perfection."

January'sParadigm holdsits rightful place in my body of work, and I remain proud of this endeavor. --From the author's afterword

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Film noir meets dreamscape meets sci-fi meets erotica meets... I'm a James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, Nelson DeMille, Dean Koontz, etc. sort of fan and found Guest' book matching up with all the positive attributes I like so much about these other authors.
January's Paradigm is written with a sardonic and sarcastic sort of wit that I found appealing. Character development is outstanding and the story is not predictable - a real plus for me since I usually figure out most stories well before the conclusions.
It's a great and fast read and offers heat in parallel with thought-provoking (and realistic) dialogue between interesting and off-beat characters.
Can't wait for the next installment.

I have turned the last page of January's Paradigm... J. Conrad Guest is truly a gifted author who has a brilliance to his
writing that takes the reader away from the mundane stories... Guest has stepped beyond an average writer with a concept for a book like this one. Good job!

It is different, which is hard to find today. It keeps you guessing until the end. That's entertaining. It wraps up intelligently. That makes me want more. I don't know much about writing but I do know about reading. I read this twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time. I've purchaced three copies as gifts (I've never done that before). All three gifts were greatly enjoyed. All four of us want more Mr. Guest! How about it?
