The Mensa Bulletin (national magazine for members of Mensa) reviewed the book Colors by Jay Magidson in their March 2013 issue. Now come on, how cool is that! If it’s good enough for Mensa, don’t you think you should get a copy too!
What a wonderful read! At one point I found myself wanting to scream, “Don’t go back.” I don’t often want to scream at a character in a book. I did while reading Colors. I was pulled into each chapter and found it hard to put the book down. I was sad when I finished the last page. Not because the story was incomplete; But because it was complete and I would have to find a new book to read which I may or may not enjoy as much. I am looking forward to Jay Magidson’s next book which will be released in fall of this year.
Here is a rave review of “Colors” I received today:
Oh wow!!! Oh my!!! I couldn’t put the book down; at times I couldn’t stop my pulse from racing; at times I wanted to rush to your house and take away all pills and sharp knives from your cupboards and drawers.
I could hear you intellectually creatively gasping for the breath of air and for the beauty of nature and open space. You wrote about other worlds/this world and you wrote about your past [or your fears during it] and the future that you are creating for yourself.
You are a brave man! And an excellent storyweaver. Bravo
After I finished your book—Colors—I felt a great need to create. And to create something colorful and mysterious. Something to cause people to perhaps stop and look and reflect and look deeper into the depths—of a forest, a soul or a stream.

Thank you everyone for the great comments. There is nothing better than knowing that readers enjoy your work. I would love it if you would share those comments on Amazon. It helps others too.
Two ways to get Colors now:
Thank you all for the great response to the release of Colors last week. I’m overwhelmed by your reaction and kind words. And thank you for buying a copy of my book. I know you have a million choices of what to read; you honor me by choosing my book. I’d love to hear your comments.
For those of you who have not had a chance to see the book, I’ve put the short story Gauze here in its entirety. It is one of the stories from Colors. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for your support and literary eyes.
