Anne E. Johnson - Author

Freelance Writer & Editor

Green Light Delivery

Read the first two chapters HERE.

"It’s surprising to go immediately into the plot, instead of having to endure numerous pages or chapters of setup." "There are plenty of alien sounding words in this story, and it’s pleasing to find them merely mentioned without long explanations as to their origin or meaning. Without insult to the reader’s intelligence, they’re used in such a way one can infer from the context and move on." New York Journal of Books

"The book's joy lies in the humorous prose." (Publishers Weekly, April 16, 2012

Synopsis from the Candlemark & Gleam website:

Webrid is a carter, like his mother and grandfather before him. It's not glamorous work, but it pays the bills, and it gives him time to ogle the sexy women on the streets of Bexilla's capital. Mostly, he buys and sells small goods and does the occasional transport run for a client.

Then he gets mugged by a robot.

Now, with a strange green laser implanted in his skull and a small fortune deposited in his bank account, Webrid has to make the most difficult delivery of his life. He doesn't know who his client is, or what he's carrying, but he knows that a whole lot of very dangerous people are extremely interested in what's in his head. Literally. And they'll do whatever it takes to get it.

With the help of some truly alien friends, a simple carter will journey across worlds to deliver his cargo. And hopefully keep his head in the process.

I won Green Light Delivery by Anne E. Johnson in a giveaway for free on Goodreads First/Reads. I was not too sure I would like this book, but I found myself captured right away with these creatures descriptions from the very beginning. I rated the book five stars~ I found myself wanting to know more ...more

I don't know if this was the intent... but this felt like a good version of those adult muppets on the first season of SNL. I imagined all the characters as Jim Henson-designed creatures, and because of that, the drama, the turns of phrase, and the references ended up making perfect sense. It's a my ...more

Book Abandoned

Stopping Point: 25%

Reason for abandonment: The book flat out wasn’t working for me.

Aliens in name only; despite describing how different they all looked the aliens were completely human, right down to using English acronyms like SOB when cussing.

The plot was very ...more

I bought this book as my high school classmate is the author. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The story was fun, well written and only mildly preachy. I really dug the fun "alien" characters and I could really envision the worlds in which the story was set. Great ...more

A really fun, enjoyable space opera, the writing reminded me often of Douglas Adams but with a slightly faster paced whimsy and more amazing, fantastical alien species. That's one thing I definitely can't overstate here, Anne E. Johnson has done a huge service to fiction by exploring alien species t ...more

Outlandish, Well Constructed, and Fun

First off, this is a well constructed mystery/thriller/action novel. An everyman is handed a parcel and he has to deliver its unknown contents to an unknown recipient in a strange and unfamiliar place, while being pursued by numerous bad guys and while torn by do ...more
By Sarah · ★★★★☆ · July 11, 2012
I love this book -- it takes the reluctant hero trope, drops it into alien worlds with alien ... aliens, and adds a little extra "I just want to go *home*, universe be damned!" Shaken, not stirred.

Webrid is such a believable every-critter, endearingly cranky, not unlike some endearingly grouchy peop ...more
