About the Author


      Jay Greenstein is a storyteller. His skills at writing may be subject to opinion, his punctuation has been called interesting by his editors—but he is a storyteller.
      He is, of course, many other things. In seven decades of living, there are great numbers of things that have attracted his attention. He is, for example, an electrician. He's also an engineer and logic designer, one who's designed computers and computer systems; one of which—during the bad old days of the cold war—flew in the plane designated as the American President's Airborne Command Post: The Doomsday Jet.
      He spent seven years as the chief-engineer of a company that built bar-code readers.
      He's been involved in scouting activities for thirty-five years, with thirteen of those years spent as a scoutmaster.
      He joined the Air Force to learn jet engine mechanics, but ended up working in broadcast and closed circuit television, serving in such unlikely locations as the War Room of the Strategic Air Command, and a television station on the island of Okinawa.
      He has been involved in sports car racing, scuba diving, sailing, and anything else that sounded like fun. He can fix most things that break, tile a floor, build a stair rail, fix the family car, sew a fairly neat seam, and has raised three pretty nice kids.
      But all of that is just background and source material for one central fact: He is, and always has been, a storyteller.

Jay Greenstein's WIZARDS has enough plot and action to constitute a story; however, the tale is pieced together much like someone might create a painting from a paint-by-number kit. You can "see" the lines between the bits of action, as though the author is writing according to some sort of formula that he keeps repeating. Additionally, the plot is too heavy-handed--like an earlier reviewer noted, I knew the ending long before I got there and had no reason to continue reading. I didn't care abut the characters enough to give a hoot if they lived or died. I sped read and skimmed most of the mid section of the book just to try to finish it. The writing is not poetic at all. The style is wordy, lacks savvy, and reminds me of someone talking into a subway tunnel. The book could use several edits. Even with the fast reading, I noticed many, many grammar and punctuation mistakes. Do not waste your money, or more important, your time, on this book. It's the work of a novice.

The writing is so simple and not in that minimalism way in which the author/artist uses sparse language as part of a less-is-more, pared down style. WIZARDS is simple and childlike and full of errors and boring characters. I somehow managed to stumble my way to about the third chapter, then I tried to make it through the fourth and began to question why I was torturing myself by trying to finish this book. I flipped through some of the pages to see if it might get more interesting but I simply could not give it my attention. The plot is predictable so there's no motive there to keep reading. The characters are flat and simplistic, and the language is choppy. I'm wondering if the book is misclassified and is a children's book. Even then, I wouldn't recommend it to a child. The writing is too stilted and not entertaining at all. In fact, the opposite, as I felt as if i was punishing myself trying to get through this book and I wouldn't recommend making reading an unpleasant experience for a child.

I enjoyed this story very much, 3 stars worth lol, I must admit that I figured the story or plate out a long time before the end. Like the saying goes, if the technology is suffiecently advance then its no different then magic.

This combine like 2 different plots one the intervention of a more advance race to save the poor earthling. Two. use an advance tech base to full the human into believing in magic.

The author did a a good job, lol in some wasy in reminded me of the book Sixthe Column by Robert A. Heinlein.

If you're in to this type of fantasy/sci-fi, I highly recommend this book. It's well-written, imaginative, and an excellent summer read.

I enjoyed this read. The chapters were the appropriate length, the word count was consistent with the number of POV characters, and flow was consistent. I'd like to see more from this writer after he get's a few more publications under his belt. Lot's of talent here!
