John Kaniecki

John is a fiction writer and poet. He was written science fiction, horror, and fantasy. He approaches all of his writing with a variety of styles. His works are entertaining and challenging. John's personal story is told in his memoirs "More Than The Madness." This book details how John successfully overcame his manic depression. It is a book of humanity, inspiration, and faith.

John's fantasy book "Fallon From The Farm" is a book the breaks new ground. The hero Fallon is a complex character compelled on a long arduous journey of both revenge and self-discovery. "Fallon From The Farm," is an emotional book one that will both excite you and make you cry. It is truly a book for the ages.

"I Should Have Been A Rock Star" is a thrilling science fiction book. With wry humor the hero Don "Hypo" Colandri is kidnapped to be a tool in a cosmic game between Nellie Watt and the nefarious Time Lords. On planet Earth, Don's roommates try to capitalize on Don's disappearance by blaming his vanishing on Satanists. But the real Satanists show up not too happy.

John's two compilations of stories "Dark Matters" and "From Chaos To Cosmos" show John's range in writing. The stories contained in these books are unique works of science fiction.

John's two works of horror, "Scarecrow, Scarecrow" and "Satan's Siren" follow the same character Anne McFry. These works are a statement in the world of horror with unusual twists and turns.

The poetic road for John Kaniecki is a long and arduous road. Presently John has seven poetry books out with more lurking in the shadows. His poetry has appeared in over one hundred outlets and in 2012 he won the coveted Joe Hill Labor Poetry Prize with an award of five hundred dollars. John is an old school poet. He believes in rhyming, rhythm and other poetic technique. A poet should have some form of meaning. If you are looking for ambiguous free verse lacking substance than I suggest that you visit some irrelevant voice.

John's poetry has been shaped by the life that he lived. Raised in an abusive atmosphere John was committed to a psychiatric hospital at the age of twenty. This traumatic experience had a profound effect on John. As life went on, John saw the other side of life, through the eyes of the poor, oppressed and disenfranchised. John could not only relate to the underdog but he took it upon himself to be their champion through poetic verse. He is the 'Poet to the Poor.'

John prides himself on his uniqueness in his writing. He doesn't copy the masters but he has learned from them and adapted their technique into a unique and powerful form. Though time will tell John has hopes that his words will be immortal. In John's poetry, you will find the great and the small, the ordinary and the extraordinary and that family feel that no matter whom large or small we share our common humanity.

Above all is the call of Jesus Christ to Love one another. John rejects the artificial Jesus who hates the poor and embraces war. But rather John is a disciple of the radical Jesus who overturned the money changers' table in the temple and taught us to Love even our enemy, the Jesus who gave it all up to die for our sins on the cross.

Take a ride of a lifetime through the thoughtful words and clever phrases of John's poetry, you will be thrilled.
