Originally from Northern Virginia, Philip Wyeth has lived in the Los Angeles area for many years. He’s an entrepreneur, musician, film aficionado, hockey fan, and enjoys playing tennis and golf.

Inspired by such unique writers as Heinrich von Kleist, Ambrose Bierce, Joseph Conrad, and Len Deighton, Wyeth's imaginative novels will resonate with fans of Philip K. Dick, Rich Larson, Michel Houellebecq, Barry N. Malzberg, Bruce Sterling, and Neal Stephenson.

Also a lifelong fan of heavy metal music and its many sub-genres, Wyeth strives to infuse his writing with comparable levels of intensity, independence, and larger-than-life visions.

Overall engaging collection with no real duds, which is why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 3. None of the stories were overly long either, so you can easily get through one or two in a sitting.

Philip Wyeth and 2 other people liked Jodi's review of Women on the Case:
Women on the Case by Sara Paretsky
"I bought this book, thinking that it would be a good mixture of mystery/detective short stories by female authors but was rather disappointed. The quality of the writing was inconsistent, as well as the fact that the plot of some wasn't a mystery or " Read more of this review »

Reparations Mind by Philip Wyeth
“Modestianity exists today because there was a pressing need for a philosophy that looked at the present in order to face the future, rather than looking backward for guidance today.”

3.5 stars. "Condition of Employment" was the best by far--an intriguing mystery gets us in, and the ending was thoughtful and satisfying. "Good Night, Mr. James" is another short winner--tense and chilling. "Drop Dead, "All the Traps of Earth," and " ...more

“He hated himself for allowing his heart to be tossed by the waves of her flicking tongue. This Earth Mother who in one moment offered limitless hope—a glorious horizon that would inspire him to perform any heroic deed she might require—before hurtling him into the hollow despair of her disdain. The goddess had chosen another! Or perhaps no one at all. What mattered was that the lovely warmth of her gaze no longer shone upon you.”
Philip Wyeth, Hot Ash and the Oasis Defect

“Have we not already seen the cultural malaise of the past fifty years, as people living within this worldwide cargo cult have been divorced from the need to produce anything, as well as from the consequences of their own actions? They have incrementally been separated from the land, from their factories, from creating art, and now they even abandon marriage and reproduction.”
Philip Wyeth, Reparations Mind

“And I know that we won't be able to escape it in deep space, either. We might succeed in ignoring this doubt for a while—keep everyone so busy doing what it takes to build the ships to get us out there. But eventually the bustle ends, and then we're left with ourselves again. It'll be the loneliest revelation ever—half a million miles from home.”
Philip Wyeth, Reparations Core

“Everybody wants to go to the nice place—instead of doing the work to make a place nice.”
Philip Wyeth, Reparations Maze

“She had a working theory about what was going on, which she called the dilemma of the steam valve. On one hand, the world was being built up and maintained virtually on autopilot by an interconnected network of machines that could assemble and repair themselves. But people still had doubts and flaws and uncontrollable passions that needed some kind of release. That didn't always make for a rosy picture.”
Philip Wyeth, Hot Ash and the Oasis Defect

“We aren't all Americans now—we're all just in America.”
Philip Wyeth, Reparations Core

“Hearing Robert Plant and Steven Tyler wail and howl took him back to his own apprehensive first steps—when money was tight, hopes were unfulfilled only because they were untested—and everything still felt like it was possible. Fast forward twenty-five years, and now maybe the world looked more like a sadder version of the movie Rear Window. Where in each apartment you would see a lonely man quietly singing away his troubles in harmony with the rock 'n' roll gods whose voices transcended space and time.”
Philip Wyeth, Chasing the Best Days

“I always stated it explicitly: All politics is war. All art is political. Therefore all art is a weapon of war. Don't wilt now at the first sight of your own blood. … You want a Purple Heart for your trouble? Fine! But really, you should be thankful to end up stacked in an unmarked mass grave, if in your dying moment you know that your life was given to win the sacred War for Equity.”
Philip Wyeth, Reparations Mind
