“I’ve been reading the works of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, often better known as Mark Twain, since I was a boy. The first film I ever saw in a movie theatre was “Huckleberry Finn”, a magical trip with my dad that I’ll never forget. My dad bought me a set of six hardback Twain books when I was about just six or seven years of age, and I read and re-read them. I read about Huck, and all the of Tom Sawyer books, even the obscure ones. As a teenager, I read “The Innocents Abroad”, and have never stopped being amused that Clemens and his friends identified every one of their foreign tour guides as “Ferguson”. One of my big high school papers was on “Pudd’nhead Wilson”, and I was thrilled after I had started it to see that it was a detective story……….."David Marcum
“How to describe Silent Meridian by Elizabeth Crowens? It’s time travel, magic, and high-pressure Steampunk excitement. It’s literary giants meeting fabulous fictional characters for historical adventure and mad bursts of futuristic drama. It’s a fantastic and fantastical entertainment. So, like our intrepid hero, John Patrick Scott, sit yourself down in your ‘thinking chair’ and let him crank up the time machine. He had to invent his. All you have to do is open this terrific book.”William Martin, New York Times Bestselling Author of Back Bay and The Lincoln Letter
