Thomas Wright

Biography

I'm a voracious reader and read just about anything if the story is good, no matter the genre, including poetry.

From Glasgow, Scotland, father of 3, not much else to say. Maybe one day, I'll even write something myself and publish it.

Smashwords book reviews by Thomas Wright

  • I Am Still Lonely on Dec. 14, 2014

    Great writing. Sad sad affair, my friend.
  • Torment Moon on Dec. 14, 2014

    You can't beat a free story. It somewhat transcends borders, pretty relevant across the spectrum, I'd say.
  • The Machine on Dec. 14, 2014

    very thought provoking
  • Let's Make This Believable on Dec. 14, 2014

    Good for being so short and simple, obviously confined by its limitations of length, provides a good chuckle, yet I hope you don't believe what you wrote, that it's just a gag.
  • I Want to Believe on Dec. 14, 2014

    I could tell you stories, my friend, of the people trying to cram such things down my throat, not that I don't believe at all, but it gets a bit much.
  • Ignorama on Dec. 14, 2014

    Not bad at all, particularly for having been written by someone so young at the time.
  • Hang on Dec. 14, 2014

    It sort of reminds me of a song by a certain American band, the title the same.
  • Still Undead on Dec. 14, 2014

    I feel this way much of the time.
  • Letting Down My Disease on Dec. 14, 2014

    You have a beautiful soul, Madam.
  • If I Could See You Again on Dec. 14, 2014

    Heartwrenching, yet it may, perhaps, give hope to the rest.
  • Glass on Dec. 14, 2014

    Reminds me of my dearly departed wife.
  • Everything That You Are on Dec. 14, 2014

    quite moving
  • Before I Get Too Bad on Dec. 14, 2014

    We're all made to feel this way, very much of the time.
  • Dead Inside, Deep Inside on Dec. 14, 2014

    Oh, kindred spirit, much the same as I.
  • Product on Dec. 14, 2014

    the great plight of mankind, my friend
  • Anymore on Dec. 14, 2014

    Beautifully moving.
  • Closer to the End on Dec. 14, 2014

    Pulls at the very soul, the tremendous agony truly felt throughout.
  • The Valiant Soldier on Dec. 14, 2014

    wonderful piece, thoughtful to write for one's grandfather
  • Pushed Around on Dec. 14, 2014

    Aren't we all? lol
  • Living No More on Dec. 14, 2014

    morbid and direct
  • Empty and Broken on Dec. 14, 2014

    a short and wonderful read, friend, the pain obvious, solace for those living the same
  • Dreams Never Come True on Dec. 14, 2014

    I love the title. Tis sad that love becomes such tediousness and drudgery that it turns man to abyss.
  • Did You Imagine on Dec. 14, 2014

    Horrid, the heart becomes when embittered by oversight and decay of subtlety.
  • Indian Endemic: The Intentional Decimation of Native Peoples on Dec. 14, 2014

    Awful and utterly atrocious what was done to these people, though I'll admit I know so little of their history.
  • Red, White, and Black: Cherokee Adoption of White Culture on Dec. 14, 2014

    I had no idea that there was such an intermingling between men both red and black. Deplorable that such things occurred, that one group could so dominate another to bring them to such ways.
  • The Hatchet Man on Dec. 14, 2014

    I seldom read horror, but I was hooked on this. The description of the beast pulled me in, his wield of deadly weapon haunting me still. Wonderful work and truly destined to satisfy loves of this genre.
  • Poems from an Unwashed Soul on Dec. 14, 2014

    There are very beautiful works contained herein. I am surprised that this is not more popular. Not everything in it speaks to me, and I have no finished it, but the majority of what I have read has been moving in many ways. Brilliant and encapsulating. I hope that you will bring us more.
  • Under the Cypress Moon on Dec. 14, 2014

    I am unfamiliar with the setting of this novel, but the majority of the work speaks to all everywhere, crossing oceans, quite translatable into any place. I have a handful of chapters yet to read, but I have been unable to put this down and have loved it so much that I wanted to let you know what I thought.
  • The Ring on Dec. 14, 2014

    Short enough to not overstep, likely that little more could be said with expansion of the work. It is gripping and spine-tingling but easy and short enough to read in only minutes. Great job. :)
  • The Swamp Fox and His Ragtag Militia on Dec. 14, 2014

    My opinion of your war and yours might differ, but this was very brilliant, engrossing, and I particularly loved the characters of MacIndry and McKevitt, though not their actions. A truly great piece, and I am thinking of getting the audio version, if there is one. Thank you for this.
  • Relentless on Dec. 14, 2014

    Perhaps, a little too juvenile but still hard to put down.
  • Eternal Desire on Dec. 14, 2014

    The end threw me. Was it a dream? I would love another like this.
  • The Beginner's Boston Dictionary on Dec. 14, 2014

    I don't know a lot of Boston or its people, except what I have seen in movies, but this was funny, perhaps a bit difficult to understand without audio, but still hilarious.
  • Fuck, I Wanna Die! on Dec. 14, 2014

    Short and straight to the point.
  • The Complete Deep Thoughts on Dec. 14, 2014

    Some contents were a bit too much, but overall, it was very funny and difficult not to read. It reminded me of the works of some great comedians, some from my country.
  • Man Vs. Woman: An Exploration Into the Different Psyches on Dec. 14, 2014

    I've felt much of this myself. I'm glad that someone said it, though some may have been far-reaching. Great read and very hilarious, perhaps, even very insightful.
  • Ideas for Dealing with Telemarketers and Scammers and Generally Annoying People on the Phone on Dec. 14, 2014

    Some wonderful ideas, though I would not use all of them. Some of them are going on my list, though. Thank you for these. :D
  • Land of Demons: The Proto-Colonization of Ezochi, an Alternate Model of Japanese Expansion on Dec. 14, 2014

    I have been to Ezo/Ezochi/Hokkaido. It is a very beautiful place to go to. I had no idea, however, of its rich history. One would expect that it had been part of Japan all along and not much different than the rest of the country in history or culture.
  • From “Savage” to Citizen: How Native Americans were Rewarded for Centuries of Struggle and Contribution on Dec. 14, 2014

    Tremendous read! I loved it! I know a fair deal about war history, especially of the World Wars, but I must say that I knew nothing of this aspect of it. Very informative, and it will make me look at things differently from now on.
  • The Legend of Arthur Tanner and Johnny Red on Dec. 14, 2014

    Though I'm not from America, I must say that I do enjoy a good Western now and then, and this was not disappointing. It lived up to my expectations and much more! If there is audio of this, I would love to find it.
  • Dreams Never Come True: Poems From the Underground on Dec. 14, 2014

    Wonderful, beautiful, moving, and absolutely amazing that it's free! Many great works on love, angst, rebellion, and life in general. You are a truly remarkable poet, Sir. :)
  • The Firstfruits of the Flesh on Dec. 14, 2014

    Was it a dream all along? I found myself hoping for Ginny's safe expulsion from her situation but was left ever to wonder, much as with many Di Caprio movies of late.
  • Poems From the Underground Volume 2 on Dec. 14, 2014

    wonderful, like the 1st. The cover leaves something to be desired, but the work herein is magnificent! Give us more.
  • The Whaleopotamus on Dec. 14, 2014

    This was, perhaps, a bit too vulgar for my taste, but it was a must read, nevertheless. Hilarious, insightful, right to the point.
  • 40 of the Most Hilarious Dirty Jokes Ever on Dec. 14, 2014

    a bit juvenile but hilarious all the same
  • Shattered: On the Edge of Insanity (3rd Anniversary Re-Release) on Dec. 14, 2014

    I bought this on another site and read it a while back, but I saw it here and thought I would leave a review. This is a masterpiece. The end will throw you hanging, trying to figure it all out, like a great puzzle. You have to suppose that the man is either completely insane and not able to be helped or that it was all in his mind and that he is, somehow, even more insane than you might have thought. I wish you had more like this!
  • The Blade of Anslor on Dec. 14, 2014

    Somewhat Tolkienesque, gripping, full of great adventure, and should be a movie. I wish that this had been longer or that there were a sequel to it.
  • “We Will Never Do An Unjust Act”: The Policies of Thomas Jefferson, Enacted by William Henry Harrison, that Forced a British Alliance with Tecumseh and Hastened War on Dec. 14, 2014

    I had no idea that your president of the time, Jefferson, was so cold and calculating toward these people. I am almost as interested in your history as I am in my own, and this is a truly great piece for getting inside of it and really progressing the understanding for everyone, both in America and abroad. I applaud you for this.
  • Illusion in the Storms on Dec. 14, 2014

    A beautiful and moving work, a testament to weathering and learning.
  • At Least Your Not Kennie on Dec. 14, 2014

    I think many people go through similar situations and feel the same emotions and torments. For a lot, it doesn't get much better, but you're never alone in your struggle. Not everyone has it easy, and there are a tremendous amount going through this. I can relate on many levels, as can many I know. You're never alone, my friend.
  • A Crooked Shadow: From Five Old Wives' Tales on Dec. 14, 2014

    I'm sorry to have to give this such a bad review, but I really wanted to read this, and you only have it available as an epub file. Some of us (quite a lot of us, actually) cannot use such a file. You should consider making other formats available as well.
  • Air Of Midnight on Dec. 14, 2014

    Not as dark as I would have hoped from the name and the cover but still worth a read.
  • Dear Jane Doe on Dec. 14, 2014

    Brilliant verses, entrancing rhyme. This is a wonderful yet saddening read.
