It was a tough one to write, to be sure, but the response has been very positive. I'm not sure how to answer exactly; I do have several other novels out which vary in what I will call "intensity," but nothing quite like Survival Instinct at this point. In terms of style and voice, you might enjoy SHACKLED or maybe PARTY. If you like urban fantasy style stuff, my novella TILL THE SUN BREAKS DOWN (at Amazon) deals with similarly difficult subject matter. Let me know if you enjoy any of them, and thank you for getting in touch, I appreciate it. :)(less)

hqdefaultIn early 1989, a friend of mine and I were staying up all night, smoking cigarettes and downing Coke, like we frequently did on weekend nights. We’d recently seen Russian glam-rock band Gorky Park on MTV, something that would have been impossible even a year prior. The Russians, as everyone knew, were Our Mortal Enemy! Except now here they were, stateside, getting kids all riled up with music,...

Good Wright stuff as usual, but this one is not as easily digested as some of his others. Honestly, if I re-read it, I will be using a pencil to cross out words and phrases during some of his longer sentences. Wright is a tremendous intellect whom I ...more

While I somewhat prefer the audiobook narrated by the late, great John Ritter, STARGIRL remains one of the top books of all-time for me. Spinelli captures high school, first love, and "magic" along with the brutality of group-think and mob mentality ...more
