The world is full of bad books written by amateurs. But why settle for the merely regrettable? Atlanta Nights is a bad book written by experts. -- T. Nielsen Hayden Atlanta Nights is a book that could only have been produced by an author well-versed in believable storylines, set in conditions that exist today, with believable every-day characters.

Aug 21, 2008"Sheer Brilliance" Obviously, the book was written well enough and professionally enough to meet the high quality standards of a certain Maryland publisher. For its sheer learning value and its amazing comedic value, I highly recommend Atlanta Nights to any writer wanting to break into the realm of publishing.
Jul 29, 2008"A true classic" Provides hours and hours of laughter and amusement. Truly ingenius. Perfect gift.
Jun 27, 2008"Secrets Revealed - " Never before have I understood the true and deepest meaning of literature as tool for the writer! Created by the blood sweat tears and dreams of unwarned writers Atlanta Nights provides a unique view of the world as it really actually is. From the first page you will see why this book will be around for years.
Jun 26, 2008"My Eyes! Oh, my eyes!" Oh the sweet, sexy pain. Like the agony of eczema, the discomfort of diarrhea, both coupled with an interstate twelve car pileup. Kinda. Sorta. Okay, Atlanta Tea is nothing like that. It's less. It's more. Reading this book means never having to say your sorry. Or surly. Or Shirley. Kudos to the TEAM!
Apr 15, 2008"Travis Tea: An Ed Wood for a new generation. " "Atlanta Nights" made me revisit my college years, where I spent many a long, long day with my face in Permanent Cringe Mode as I reviewed the submissions to the campus literary magazine. It's deliriously awful but very funny; it could probably be taught in creative writing courses as a one-stop "What NOT To Do" lesson.
Dec 16, 2007"A confidence-booster for aspiring writers!" Lowering the bar for fiction everywhere, ATLANTA NIGHTS rivals such notable works as NIGHT TRAVELS OF THE ELVEN VAMPIRE and THE EYE OF ARGON in quality. It has changed my views of fiction: I now have a far greater appreciation for coherent plot and well-developed characters. Thanks, Travis Tea!
Sep 17, 2007"Why on earth..." would a talented, smart, dedicated, and otherwise exemplary group of people participate in a hoax of this magnitude? For a worthy cause, I suppose. I anticipate MANY pleasant hours reading and re-reading this piece of utter dreck--trying to puzzle out which of my favorite writers to blame for each and every dreadful chapter. I just hope I recover from the annoying twitch beneath my left eye that I developed upon reading the first three pages. Fans in the know could develop an online game of "identify-the-chapter-writer" to keep ourselves occupied for months.
Aug 28, 2007I nearly died laughing at this. It's almost better than naughty mad libs. I'd never even heard of Publish America until I stumbled across this gem almost three years ago via a messageboard. Long live science fiction writers.
Jul 16, 2007"Brilliant badness" Atlanta Nights is hilarious. I can't think of anything to say that hasn't been said before, so I simply urge you to purchase this literary masterwork!
May 9, 2007"A New Standard in Publishing" Listing the merits of Atlanta Nights would daunt the most expert reviewer: one hardly knows where to begin. Indeed, no amount of praise is adequate to do justice to this book, which truly marks a new standard in traditional publishing. Aspiring authors can take many lessons from Mr. Tea's unique way with language, the remarkable fluidity of his characterization, the bold leaps in his plotting. His daring Chapter 34, in particular, demonstrates a literary quality that the reader cannot credit to any merely human talent. This novel will take its place in literature as proof that writers need not fear experimentation. Atlanta Nights is an experiment that has surely succeeded. Buy one. Buy two. Buy enough for your friends and family!
