Writer's Digest Commentary - They Are Not Yet Lost

 A fascinating collection of true-life stories  involving psychic detectives called into help solve a myriad of  situations and crimes. We may have heard about psychics called  in to missing persons cases, and may have pre-conceived notions about the efficiency of such expertise. For those who  question the art and science of psychic detecting, this book is  illuminating, and we find ourselves digging deeper into what the  gift of psychic detection must be like to have as one’s own gift.  The author does an excellent job of creating  realistic situations, with an instinct to provide setting, dialogue and  written                      messaging beautifully enriched for our experiential  enjoyment. We’re right there in the search, and we listen to the psychics’ reports about a missing person having  planned his getaway, and that he may be fishing, with an adoption of the investigator’s mindset. Well done. Author has a  terrific instinct for pacing, never allowing a story to lurch, or                      delve into minutiae. Well done. Sections are  well-paced, and individual psychic detectives are differentiated well.  The order of the cases is smartly structured as well. I liked  the author’s decision to help the reader form their own psychic detective group, for those readers who may have  picked up this book to self-assess in his or her own perceived gifts.  That’s all-inclusive writing, and another gem of this  book. Good work.

What Reader's Say About Dan's Novels

 

If  not for the fact that I had known the author in college, I never would have read Caldera. In  fact, westerns are not  my usual genre of choice for leisure reading. I must admit that  I began reading it with an equal mix of curiosity, skepticism and optimism. By the time I had finished (to paraphrase David  Alan Coe), I realized that my friend had written the perfect  western novel. The story and its rich cast of diverse  characters immediately grabbed me and pulled me into the harsh reality of the badlands of the post-Civil War (a.k.a. The War of Northern Aggression as it is still referred to in parts of          the South) Arizona Territory. It is a world populated by  grizzled frontiersmen, fierce Apache raiders, peaceful Pima allies, dangerous Mexican outlaws and a host of other believable,  period-appropriate characters who must interact with one another in an ever changing dance of survival of the fittest and most  resourceful. The "action" scenes are frequent, varied and compelling. It is also a story of relationships, love stories, deceptions, friendships, betrayals, temporary alliances,  and grudging co-existences. The many references to Native American culture, customs and language are authentic and well researched. Dan has written the perfect western novel.

As  a writer, I'm always pleased to see another writer succeed. As a  professional freelance editor, I'm even more pleased when an editing client succeeds. I read a lot of manuscripts. Every now and  then, one comes along that screams for a sequel. That was the case with Caldera. Although Caldera is a long novel that left  me more than satisfied, it was such an excellent story that  it also left me hungering for more. When Dan told me he was  going to write Man on Fire, a sequel to Caldera, I didn't really care whether I got to edit it. I just wanted to read it. And  not to let the cat out of the bag, but I have it on good authority that Dan is planning at least two more books in the Caldera  series. I predict this will be a saga in the grand style of James A. Michener, but without all the misplaced modifiers.

Dan  Baldwin's novel, Caldera, is a rich experience on so many levels. His plot lines are anything but predictable - exciting  and gritty to be sure, yet frequently elevated to the spiritual, even the supernatural - sometimes disturbing, but always unforgettable. His characters, even the secondary and lesser ones, ring as authentic and as contrasting as wind chimes of pottery and brass. Baldwin's novel portrays the real Wild West, and          in particular the Arizona territory, as it truly was before statehood and great migrations rendered it "civilized" and long enough afterwards to present a historically balanced  and well-researched story. The characters of Caldera defy the stereotypes of heroes and villains, of Native Americans,  Hispanics and White peoples. They reflect the variety and complexity of the era - cowboys and Indians; drifters, gamblers and empire  builders; soldiers and settlers; farmers, ranchers and renegades; townspeople, prostitutes, merchants and madams - all against a  varied and beautiful, but raw and unforgiving landscape. Be forewarned, reading Dan Baldwin's Caldera places one in a vast  and virtual reality - an experience hard to leave and harder to forget, lingering long after the last word whispers an echo.
