As nice as it is to get published, it’s even better to get a positive review. Here’s a list of all reviews of my work that I am aware of. If you know of another, please let me know. I won’t hide negative reviews, but you know that I’ll highlight positive reviews. Further, I am chary to post reviews from people that I have asked to read my work, although I do thank them for writing their reviews.
“God’s Sandbox”, PMOArgus Press (Nov 2016)
This work appears only on Amazon, and I am unaware of any reviews outside of that site. I have asked one author to read my work, and she posted the only review so far.
Chronicle Worlds: Paradisi, Samuel Peralta (anthologist) Windrift Books (Nov 2016). “Nuking The Noomies”
This work appears only on Amazon, and I am unaware of any reviews outside of that site.
- Karen Reese, Amazon.com. “The book starts out with a bang with Nooking The Noomies by Bill Patterson which is one of my favorites.”
- Melanie S., Amazon.com. “This collection of short stories offers a dozen vignettes of humanity’s post-apocalyptic second-chance world. The quality of writing here is uniformly top-notch…There are tales of man’s heroic sacrifice, like “Nuking the Noomies”…”
- Miles, Amazon.com. “These stories stay with you; from the passions of SJ Mayeski’s “Unbreakable” to dealing with the decisions in Bill Patterson’s “Nuking the Noomies” we are in other places and times and come away not only entertained but love having done it.”
90 Minutes to Live, Joel Kirkpatrick (edit0r) JournalStone Press (Dec, 2011). “Roque’s Requiem”
- Dr. Michael Collins, Collings Notes, “Throughout, the writing is strong, the imagination satisfying…Highly Recommended”
- Dave Gammon, HorrorNews.Net, “A wonderful, eye opening read and thank you for humbling this cynical critic.”
- GatheringLeaves, “JournalStone has managed to find another group of extremely talented authors for this year’s anthology!”
Normally, I wouldn’t include reviews on bookseller websites, but these two specifically mentions my work:
- Jody Darden, Amazon.com. “A very well done space station story. Well drawn, believable characters and not too far fetched in technology. I recommend this author’s writing.”
- Rob M. Miller, Amazon.com. “another science fiction piece that wonderfully balances science fiction with that most important story factor, the study of the human animal. Interesting to note that on Good Reads, author Bill Patterson, lauds “Dead Already,” the book’s 1st Place winner as being a superior story. Humble man. He may be wrong, though. Might just be that this story is different. For this reader, this is one of the most outstanding stories in the whole book.”
Rocket Science, Ian Sales (editor). Mutation Press (April 8, 2012). “A Ray of Sunshine”
- Nominated for the 2012 British Science Fiction Association Award for Best Non-Fiction
- Eric Brown, The Guardian: “Superb”
- Paul F. Cockburn, The Zone: “an excellent range of stories” *
- Michael Flett, Geek Chocolate: “the quality of the writing is consistently high” *
- Terry Grimwood, The Future Fire: “I was immediately at home here, comfortable and in many cases utterly riveted” *
- Rising Shadow: “Highly recommended!” and “The non-fiction articles are as interesting as the stories.”
- Adam Roberts; Punkadiddle: “This is a very solid collection of short fiction” and “the non-fiction pieces are all, pretty much, informative and interesting”
- Jaine Fenn, Tales from the Garret: “I wasn’t entirely sure I’d enjoy Rocket Science, but I found I had nothing to fear” and “The inclusion of appropriate factual pieces worked well”
- Richard Palmer, Solar Bridge: “I thoroughly enjoyed this”
- Lois Tilton, Locus Online: “refreshing twists and departures from the predictable and formulaic”
- Interzone (no link): “I can almost imagine sitting in Patterson’s company as he says ‘You think ionising radiation is bad? Wait until you get a load of this other stuff!‘
A tip of the hat to Helen Jackson, who created this collated list, and Ian Sales, who maintains the master list of reviews and links. Reviews are arranged approximately in the order they were published.
