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, 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.

Philip Wyeth and 8 other people liked Bradley Horner's blog post: Artists
"It's very hard being an artist. A lot of the time it's like being invisible if you're not just ignored. Truth. Maybe it's different for some people, but for the rest of us, we either get skins of stone and perform our art in the dark or we preten..." Read more of this blog post »

An intense and immersive experience! With so much stilted and overly technical sci-fi out there, it was refreshing to get into speculations on the mental effects of space travel. A sense of mystery and foreboding permeates the narrative, as you feel ...more

I just read On a Planet Alien and Beyond Apollo back to back. There are definite similarities regarding the main characters descending into madness while on a space mission.

The writing style could almost be called "literary rambling," because there

Philip Wyeth and 29 other people liked Bradley's review of Beyond Apollo:
Beyond Apollo by Barry N. Malzberg
"This here is a very unusual novel.

Most of the time I read it, I was equally disgusted and remorseful for the kinds of pathetic sexualizations that came out of the early 70's. Being a New Wave SF novel, thoroughly in league with the heyday's litera..." Read more of this review »

Venus Plus X by Theodore Sturgeon
"This is strike 2 for Sturgeon, for me. Only made it about 20 pages in before I felt like I was reading random words put together into sentences. Just kept on finishing paragraphs thinking, "What?" I was interested in what was happening with the al..." Read more of this review »

Reparations Maze by Philip Wyeth
“Remember and remember again, that in dark times all a man need do is seek the truth. Protect it and speak it. Then, even if he is a wanderer for years and years, righteousness shall survive while the tallest of castles crumble.”

“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

“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
