About"Watch out for James Morrow: He's magic" is how The Washington Post's Ron Charles describes the author.
Janet Maslin of The New York Times call him "a novelist of intellect, bravado and wildly phantasmagorical imagination."
James Morrow's fiction always presents an original (frequently outrageous and eccentric) take on any subject he tackles, often using satire to bring his point home. Much of his work has received high praise, not only from within the science fiction community but from the mainstream literary world as well.
Russian translations of his novel, Only Begotten Daughter, and collection, Bible Stories for Adults, led to him being invited to participate in the Fifteenth International Tolstoy Conference.
James Morrow calls State College, Pennsylvania, his home, where he resides with his wife, his son, and an enigmatic sheepdog and a loopy beagle.
