Critical Praise

"A master storyteller…Shors weaves psychological intrigue by looking at his characters’ competing desires: love, revenge, and meaning.  Both lyrical and deeply imaginative, Beside a Burning Sea confirms again that Shors is an immense talent."

Amy Tan

"John Shors is an author of sweeping imaginative force."

Sandra Gulland, author of The Josephine B. Trilogy
