About D. W. St.John

Here is where a writer is supposed to tell you all about the exciting things he's done. How he's wrestled crocodiles in Tanzania, bounced drunks in an Amsterdam brothel, smuggled guns to Cuba and sat in as drummer for the Who in Tokyo. Well, I've never done any of that, but hey, nobody's perfect.

My life is much like yours. I'm just another soul shoe horned into a meat puppet biding my time until I return to the one.

These stories are just dreams I lived. If I've done my job even passably well, then you may live them, too.

Review by: Chris Bullock on Sep. 10, 2012 :
I couldn't get into this book at all. This was mainly due to the shortage of many coherent sentences. It may have been the intention of the author to portray urgency in the writing by having phrases, exclamations and part sentences, but unfortunately it put me off reading past the first few pages.
Sorry.

Review by: Carol on Aug. 14, 2012 :
It took me about a hundred pages to get into this story, due to head-hopping and getting the world setting sorted out. It picked up as it went along with lots of action.
The formatting could use chapter breaks. The story itself is interesting with thought-provoking concepts on genetic research and cloning.

Review by: Dorothy Koch on Dec. 20, 2011 :
Well written book. It is always great to have a book that has been well edited. I personally didn't get hooked on the story but still read it - which says a lot for the writer. Good work.

Thought provoking, well written, story with some rather deeper more memorable characters than most. Well worth the time and money spent.

Review by: ChristophxThexMighty on April 06, 2011 :
I believe there are 2 kinds of books. Ones you are glad when the ending comes because you want to move on with your life, and ones that make you irate as hell at the end because it IS over when you don't want it to be. This book for me is the latter. The characters are richly drawn in words for you, making you feel each one's personality. Each setting is created just as well so you feel like you are transported to the environment and experiencing what the characters are, whether it is action, horror, humor, or touching scenes between characters. If you plan on reading this, be prepared to not want to put it down.

Review by: Alan Rudge on Jan. 19, 2011 :
I couldn't put this down. I'm not a huge fan of science fiction, mainly because so much of it lacks strong characterisation in favour of the science, but this is not the case here. I was totally involved in the plot, absorbed to the very last page. I'm sure if you pick it apart you could find inconsistencies, but that would kill the enjoyment of one of the best science fiction tales I've read for a considerable time.

Review by: Roger R. Fernandez on Nov. 30, 2010 :
As this masterly written novel of romance and futuristic images moves forward, the reader realizes that he has entered a real world of intensive conflict and exhausting action, a possible world where to escape to, though perhaps not to the 21st century streets of Los Angeles… “Sisters of Glass” is indeed a page turner, fun producing read!

Review by: BattleCat on Nov. 10, 2010 :
Dystopian; yes. Hokey; no. Really well done actually. I expected for it to be horribly trite and vulgar; another Blade Runner fantasy. It wasn't. It had a few plot holes big enough to drive a train through (medical, legal, and technical)but you hardly notice them, if you're allowing yourself to enjoy the book. I ignored them. Enjoyed the escapism; good job. Didn't see any 'techno that needed skipping'.

Review by: Sarah Williams on Feb. 18, 2010 :
Ever read a book that really takes you there? Not just tells you about it, but puts you right there where it's happening? This one does it. There's some techno that needs skipping and some flashbacks too, but the scenes are blood red meat. I liked it when he prayed in the middle of all those sisters. Sweet.
