Reviews for Marc Cullison’s Vietnam Books!

These titles are available on Amazon today!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

STRAP IN – WAR FROM A CHOPPER PILOT’S POINT OF VIEW – In 1971, I was a college kid trying to pick a major so I could graduate. Marc Cullison was first lieutenant flying helicopters over the dense and dangerous jungles of Vietnam. “The Other Vietnam” brings to the reader the smells, sounds and dangers of that life-changing experience. It’s the details that matter: the MPCs, the hooch girls, rats in bed, the missions and the dangers of war. This is a well-told story of coming of age in the worst possible place to do it.

MARC CULLISON’S FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT AS A HELICOPTER PILOT IN VIETNAM

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A GREAT RETROSPECTION OF RETURNING TO VIETNAM FORTY YEARS AFTER – I highly recommend Marc Cullison’s “Vietnam Again.” It was a great read. It’s the story of a group of Vietnam Veterans who return to Vietnam for a two-week rediscovery trip. Their expectations were mixed about returning to such a dark foreboding time in their lives. It proved to be much more than a trip to a place they once knew, Cullison’s recollections and conclusions are thoughtful, compelling, and an example of a group of men coming to terms with their time as soldiers in this tiny sliver of a country that had such a profound impression on their lives. As I said before, “Vietnam Again,” was a great read!

WONDERFUL, OTHERWORLDLY ADVENTURE – This was a fun fantasy read. The author does an excellent job of world building while managing the character development well. If you love fairytale/fantasy, this book is for you!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

EXCELLENT – It’s a very nice detective story that kept me in suspense until the case was resolved. It presents the characters very vividly and the plot unfolds in such a way that it does not let you stop reading the book. I recommend it to all lovers of this kind of novels.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

GREAT MUSIC STORY – The story of Bobby who has made some bad choices in life. I thought this was going to the run of the mill sex, drugs and rock-and-roll story but this story goes deeper. Don’t expect a high octane page turner here, but the pace is constant. This is more of a piece of literary fiction than genre fiction, but anyone can get something from this story. I read the book in two sessions (one on the beach with my eReader) and found it very enjoyable. The only criticism I have is that the author tends to tell rather than show. Some scenes are writing in a matter-of-fact way. Like so and so went to college, etc. The story is strong, so it isn’t that much of a problem. If you ignore those parts, it is a very good story.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

LOVED THIS BOOK! – Wow, what a great book! I’m picky when it comes to books like this, but it was excellent! The conversations were real, something I rarely see in the books I’ve read lately. They were believable and realistic. It made me feel something, like intense, another quality that is lacking in most the books I read. You need to put your paragraphs together with indentations. Very descriptive and interesting book, great job Jerry!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A BRILLIANT MEMOIR – The author’s experiences in the pointless Vietnam conflict are described in this memoir. Although much has been written pro & con about this war, Cullison’s memoir is a special contribution. It is about the experiences of the “every-day-Joe” in a war without meaning and purpose.

The Other Vietnam War: A Helicopter Pilot’s Life in Vietnam receives another 5 Star Review!

If you haven’t read Marc Cullison’s ‘The Other Vietnam War” A Helicopter Pilot’s Life in Vietnam’ yet, what are you waiting for? It’s receiving rave reviews! Here is one from July 15th!

Raw and Honest – Truly a different look at Vietnam – 5 STARS!!

“Being born in the mid sixties, I remember Vietnam, but was too young to really absorb all that was happening. I, of course, have since read much on it. This author gives a different look than most books. I compare it to Leander Stillwell’s A Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War. It’s not meant to be a historical record of battles, events, losses, and victories. Both books are meant to take the reader inside the life of one particular solider; to be with him during his commission. This book causes the reader to see what the author sees, experience what he experiences, and make you feel like you are right alongside him.

It’s not always pretty, and you may not agree with the author’s take or response to some circumstances. But, this book is Marc Cullison’s experience, not ours or anyone else’s. Mr. Cullison is brutally honest and completely open with the reader. That is why I am giving this book 5 stars. He has pulled the curtain back, and allowed us an uncensored view of his life and experience as an officer during the Vietnam War. Thank you for that!”

Have You Seen This 5 Star Review for The Frank Nagler Mysteries?

ATMOSPHERIC, UNCONVENTIONAL, COMPELLING POST-INDUSTRIAL MYSTERY ANTHOLOGY – 5 STARS!!

The award-winning Frank Nagler Mysteries, books 1-3 are compiled in ‘The Frank Nagler Mysteries’. This anthology contains: ‘The Swamps of Jersey’, ‘A Game Called Dead’, and ‘The Weight of Living.’

Read the first three books in this series back-to-back. This hardback compilation is the perfect gift for the mystery lover in your life!

This anthology of the Frank Nagler Mysteries contains the first three books in the series: Swamps of New Jersey, A Game Called Dead, and The Weight of Living, as well as a bonus short story. Set in the fictional post-industrial city of Ironton, New Jersey, each novel has a different theme, giving each a distinctive feel and a new experience for the reader. Swamps of New Jersey’s theme, to me, was about decay; the corruption and decay and breaking down of post-industrial America, where the stable, blue-class way of life most people enjoyed has gone and isn’t coming back. It’s also about what lies beneath, be it beneath the murky waters of a swamp, or behind a friendly face or respectable facade. A Game Called Dead is, on the other hand, a cat and mouse game between a ruthless, ambitious murderer and the symbolic champion of law and order. The who is almost immediately apparent, but the tension is built over what they’ll do next, and how the protagonist will prevail. The Weight of Living concerns the cycle of abuse and how people live with their traumas, alone and together.

Michael Stephen Daigle’s writing style is dynamic and vivid, with long atmospheric streams of description that let you taste the grit of Ironton’s streets in your mouth. He accurately captures the simultaneous despair and defiance common to post-industrial towns, colored by Nagler’s perspective. Nagler is not a hard-boiled detective relying on his fists and his pistol. Instead, he’s a perceptive, thoughtful protagonist, whose melancholy threatens to, but never succeeds in, dampening his sense of right and wrong. His words may be cynical, but his actions belie his inner hope that no matter how bad things look, they can get better. Wounds can be healed. Wrongs can be righted. It’s this inner conflict that makes Frank Nagler a compelling protagonist.

In the interest of transparency, I should mention that I am a member of a writing group that Michael Daigle is part of, but these books were already published well before I had joined. I purchased this anthology (and the fourth novel, The Red Hand) on my own and have received no compensation of any kind for this review.

THE RED HAND: Distinguished Favorite in 2020 Independent Press Awards

We are so thrilled for Mike Daigle! Not surprised, but absolutely thrilled!

Michael Stephen Daigle

When we writers sit down to compose a story, we hope we will write the best story possible with the material at hand. Then we hope other people like it. Sometimes that notice comes in the form of awards.

So I am pleased and remarkably humbled to say that THE RED HAND, Frank Nagler Mystery No. 4, has been named a DISTINGUISHED FAVORITE in the 2020 Independent Press Awards.

Thank you to the contest runners and the judges.

What is especially important about this award is that it recognizes the work of small, independent publishers. So this award is as much for THE RED HAND, as it is for my publisher IMZADI PUBLISHING, www.imzadipublishing.com.

Thanks guys. You gave me that chance.

I also like that this award is run by a New Jersey company. Thanks.

Here’s the announcement: “We are thrilled to announce the winners and distinguished favorites…

Michael Stephen Daigle

The hardest part of writing at times is knowing too much.

In the case of THE RED HAND, the Frank Nagler Mystery series prequel, that was surely the case. I had written three books about Frank Nagler, Ironton. N.J., and set out to write the fourth.

I had a choice – Go forward, or go back and examine the story from the beginning.

I went back, deciding answering questions about the past would help the series move forward.

That’s went it got hard.

I knew too much about Frank and the town and the story that needed to be told.

And it showed up in the writing, which was flat, predictable and boring.

There is this: If as a writer you are bored with what you are putting on paper, the reader will be, too.

So, I started over by beginning the story in the middle.

It worked.

It gave…
