I am a multi-award-winning journalist and copywriter. I have also written a number of books, both fiction and nonfiction and plan to write even more. I work as a freelance writer in Gettysburg, PA, where I live with my wife and sons.

The past few weeks I’ve been revamping my website. Take a look at jamesrada.com if you haven’t seen it yet. One of the things that has been revamped is my history blog. It is now part of my website.

This is a great story, which I enjoyed. I just didn't enjoy it quite as much as The Alienest. Carr does a great job of pulling you into turn-of-the-century New York. I also enjoy reading about the ensemble cast of characters.
