Excellent first novel 30 Nov 2001
By Sam Leith - Published on Amazon.com
I should confess an interest. I met the author once in a bar in Jemez Springs, New Mexico, and bought her book on the strength of our meeting. I can confess now I didn't have particularly high expectations of it but was curious to see the result of the years of dedication Bettyann had spent bringing to the page what started (literally, if I remember her right) as a dream.
I was utterly knocked out. It was thoughtful, compellingly plotted, thoroughly involving and with a real gift for originality of expression. I wolfed it in two days flat. Bettyann has been compared to Herbert or Heinlein but what it reminded me of more than anything else was Julian May's Saga of the Exiles, in terms of its range and scope and its scifi/fantasy blend. What shortcomings there are could be ironed out by the professional editor she undoubtedly deserves. This is a considerable talent in the raw.

new mexico author leaps into the future and the past 12 Dec 2000
By r. stanley moore - Published on Amazon.com
Northern New Mexico - Bettyann Craddock has painted a thousand pictures with her first science fiction novel , "The Culling Dark". Colorfull characters rivet this action filled story together in dramatic fashion . Surprising twists keep the plot interesting from chapter to chapter in this very beleivable tale of a group of explorers marooned on a planet which is not unlike our own desert-southwest. Struggle for survival is only half the story in this heart-wrenching drama that begs for a sequel . Watch for this book on the best sellers list in the sci-fi future . R.Stanley moore

New Life for a Sleeping Genre 24 Jan 2001
By Dan L Powell - Published on Amazon.com
after reading "THE CULLING DARK" by Betty Ann Craddock I was truly mesmerised by the intricacy and powerful story telling of this absolutely inspired author. This world is as complex as any Herbert or Heinlein world with a rich interplay between characters that literally keep you on the edge of your seat and crying out for more at the end. Please oh please publish the next.

Desert Dwellers, Rejoice! 28 Oct 2001
By Gil Zepeda - Published on Amazon.com
As a self proclaimed "desert-rat", I could identify and see that Ms. Craddock has herself lived in such a climate. Her descriptions were incredible. The themes invloved are also of much interest to me. The discovery of myth and gnosis is to often ignored by to many authors. It's refreshing to to see a development that is not mainstream or boring by any interpretation. If you are looking for sci-fi, that gets deep, and gets you trapped, check this tome out!
I felt like I was really there 19 April 2001
By David Higgins-Myers - Published on Amazon.com
I cared about the characters and what they were doing, and what happened to them. The story is still with me. I think about it, and wish I could go there again. Where is the next book?
