Book Re-Release/Spotlight: All For Naught by John E. Stith


Award winning author John E. Stith has re-released nine science fiction titles in 2016 and 2017! I've featured all of his books on my blog and this is the ninth, and final, one. I'm not generally a Sci-Fi fan, but have enjoyed each book of his which I have read. If you love Sci-Fi, be sure to check them all out!

All for Naught, by John E. Stith
Re-released in 2017, 140p, Science-Fiction/Mystery



ALL FOR NAUGHT collects a novella and a novelette: "Naught for Hire" and "Naught Again," both originally published in ANALOG. "Naught for Hire" is a quirky, action-packed, comedy set just a few years from now. Nick Naught, private eye, walks down some strange mean streets as he tries to stay ahead of the killers on his tail and does his best to cope in a world where all the irritations we have with technology are magnified. Gadgets act up in big ways, including voice-operated machines that talk back to people. Dilbert could relate.


Science fiction and mystery author John E. Stith writes across many worlds. His books have been translated to French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian and are even available in braille for the sight-impaired. His stories have been categorized as "Hard science fiction," a label given to those stories thoroughly researched to play fair with the rules of science; something any die-hard SciFi fan can appreciate.

It was during the summer Science-Math Institute for High School Students at Cloud State College, John served as editor for the school paper, but several more years would pass before the urge to write, strengthened by years of loving to read, was too compelling to ignore. His stories vary, but his books are packed with suspense, mystery, and humor.

Stith holds a B.A. in physics from the University of Minnesota, has served as an Air Force Officer, where he worked at NORAD Cheyenne Mountain Complex. The passion for science runs in his family, as his father George worked at the White Sands Missile Range on such projects like the rocket sled.

He has appeared on a live nationwide PBS broadcast or Science-Fiction Science-Fact (SF2) and his work has also been sold to film and television. His novel Reckoning Infinity was chosen as one of Science Fiction Chronicle's Best Science Fiction Novels, Redshift Rendezvous was picked as a Nebula Award nominee and Manhattan Transfer received an honorable mention from the Hugo Awards and a nomination from the Seium Award in Japan.

Stith is a member of Science-Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA), Mystery Writers of America (MWA), Writers Guild of America (WGA), International Thriller Writers, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers (RMFW), Colorado Author's League and Mensa. He currently lives in Colorado Springs.
