“Raymond Fraser is a natural story teller. His talent with narrative is second to none in this country.” MICHAEL O. NOWLAN, The Gleaner
“I’ve had the pleasure of reading five of Raymond Fraser’s books over the past few years. A great storyteller and one of the country’s truly under-appreciated natural resources.” LAWRENCE CREAGHAN, The Write Stuff
“Reading Fraser’s writing is like listening to the voice of an epoch. He explores the things that made the sixties and seventies so legendary.”
MICAH O’DONNELL, The Aquinian
