About John M. Davis

I've published 35 stories, including two #1 bestsellers. That said, I'm not your average author. I don't hang out in coffee shops or rub elbows at writing conferences - I'm a country boy who enjoys reading and writing, simple as that. I figured out a long time ago that readers want to escape reality for a few hours and that's what my stories provide.

Outside of writing, I'm a huge fan of pre-1950s fiction. I'm also a full-time college student, a proud husband and father, and I co-own a podcast called "Book Commander" where I pay it forward by helping new authors, free of charge. I invite you to check out my work (some of it's free to download) and stop by my podcast.

Review by: Hannes Birnbacher on Feb. 11, 2017 : (no rating)
Okay, "The Fleet" or "Gunship" series will never become another "Foundation" from Asimov but it's big fun to read them. Stories are so rich that I found it difficult to simply keep track of the various monsters, which are all man-eating, lots of them vampires. The latest one are the krall, some sort of talking and walking werewolves. But I also found it difficult to keep track of the monsters in Van Vogt's "Voyage of the Space beagle", be it coeurl, ixtl or The Annabis, which all have a unfortunately tendency to destroy mankind all over the universe - as is the case with Davis' monsters, too.
Van Vogt's monsters, however, are defeated by the use of brains and insights in alien psychology, Davis' by revolvers and swords, carried by space cowboys and warriors. Maybe that is the exciting aspect in his stories of never-ending wars. In any case, I like the entertainment abundantly available in his novels.

During the past few years, the stories or at least some stories from this authors have improved from stereotype shootings and true love, persons which somehow are all alike, to more subtile topics: what type of person is this, why is he/she acting as he/she does, what made the person what he/she is. It is my expectation that we will have to expect always more refined and differentiated stories in the future.

Remark: I never give ratings. This author would, in my system, be a little bit better than "may be worth paying money for" and not so good as "immediately buy anything from this author at any price".
