From the Author
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

Top Customer Reviews
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.
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!
