Happy Birthday, Jack London

Jack London

Today is the 145th birthday of writer and adventurer Jack London. Like Robert E. Howard and Ray Bradbury, Jack London was largely self-taught, and his maverick, imaginative style continues to attract and captivate new generations of readers.

If you think London just wrote adventure tales for kids, well, you need to check out my post Jack London: Blood and Redemption at the DMR Books web site.

I’m honored that Deuce Richardson invited me to write this post to kick off the 2021 DMR Guest Bloggerama. And I hope my introduction to Jack London’s life and work will help more readers discover him.

  1. I read your article , Jack London: Blood and Redemption, and thank you. You write with ease and engagement and help me learn so much more about his life and progress.
    Fantastic and rich life in spite of abject poverty- or because of?

    Thank you Mike

    1. Thank you for the compliment, Miriam. This stood out in your comment: “Fantastic and rich life in spite of abject poverty- or because of?”

      Great question! That echoes Marcus Aurelius: “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”
