A Little Love from Australia

I’m a big fan of Australia. Not only do they have kangaroos and koalas, many of my favorite actors and actresses are Aussies. I hope to go there someday. Do you suppose I’ll meet Hugh Jackman or Cate Blanchett or Margot Robbie? Probably not. But it turns out that Aussies have great taste in science fiction, as well.

An Australian SF magazine called Aurealis has just reviewed my novel Sunborn. This is amazing. How often does a book get reviewed almost 15 years after it was published? Never, that’s how often. Well, hardly ever. But in this case…I think it’s time for me to count my blessings. Reviewer Terence MacManus has just given a thoughtful (and favorable) review of the fourth book of The Chaos Chronicles, and concluded with this:

Sunborn is a wonderful synthesis of the best classic science fiction elements with the novel and unique storytelling that sets Carver’s work apart.

It’s nice to be appreciated. From Aurealis Issue #165.

    Hello Jeffrey, I am a fan of science fiction novels from the 80s. I recently found your novel “The Infinity Link” inside a thrift store. I had to buy it. Wonderful decision because I’ve been wrapped up in the crazy reality of Mozelle! Thank you so much for writing such an incredible piece. I am a new fan of yours but I know it will be a lifelong journey of diving into your books. Sincerely, Brandon 🙂

      Hi Brandon! I’m so glad you found The Infinity Link at the thrift store. What a wonderful way to be introduced. 🙂 I look forward to feeling the vibes of you reading my other books. If you like ebooks, you’ll find that Neptune Crossing is free, as a way to try out The Chaos Chronicles. Thanks for writing! –JAC

        The Infinity Link book will forever be cherished by me, I am so happy I found it! A funny little coincidence is that I am 23 and living in Phoenix, when I read that Mozie was 23 and living in New Phoenix I smiled. I will definitely start Neptune Crossing next! I absolutely love how descriptive and detailed your work is. Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to reply to me. It means the world to me. I hope you have a wonderful week.
