Publishers Weekly described it as a "novel for those who enjoy probing for meaning in experimental prose." Prolific American author Joyce Carol Oates has read sections of his novel The Vanishing Woman and terms them, " . . . extremely well-written and suspenseful . . . Davis is talented." Louis Owens, author of Bone Game and The Sharpest Sight calls Davis, " . . . a writer I value . . . " Author Jeanne Cavelos, The Science of The X Files, says about his novel Sugar of Lead, " . . . the writing is beautiful . . . imbued with power and poetry . . . the characters are fascinating and compelling . . . the plot satisfying, yet surprising . . . " Alex Blackburn, editor of Writers Forum, University of Colorado, says, "Davis has tremendous dramatic talent." His play Blood Red Horses On The Moon has received staged readings at First Stage and the Tiffany Theatre in Los Angeles. His screenplay Under The Gun was independently produced in Los Angeles as well. As a successful private teacher, he founded an SAT Prep Academy for high school students, and during the course of ten years, he has taught hundreds and hundreds of young people. The insights he has gleaned from his years of teaching Korean-American students and from his contact with Korean culture in general here in America have been imaginatively woven into his novel Sugar of Lead. Mr. Davis is married, has three sons, and with his wife and family, makes his home in Chino Hills, California.From Publishers Weekly:
The young heirs of a pair of Korean gangsters are raised together in California, along with the son of an Irish mobster, in Almer John Davis's Sugar of Lead, an uneven cross-cultural thriller with mystic overtones. Michael "Sugar" Pierce has always considered it his duty to look after his Korean comrades especially the beautiful Katherine. But when the body count spirals out of control, he settles on an even more arduous task: to fight for peace.
