About this author

New York Times best-selling novelist Scott Sigler is author of the INFECTED trilogy (INFECTED, CONTAGIOUS and PANDEMIC), ANCESTOR and NOCTURNAL, hardcover hardcover thrillers from Crown Publishing; and the co-founder of Empty Set Entertainment, which publishes his Galactic Football League series (THE ROOKIE, THE STARTER, THE ALL-PRO and THE MVP).

Think of it, Helen — consumption of a story for both mind and body. The soul would rejoice! Perhaps Stephen King's CUJO spelled out on turkey and provolone with pickles, mayo, stone ground mustard, lettuce and jalapeño on a fresh dutch crunch.

To properly enjoy tasty fiction of such caliber, one would need to follow that up with a summer afternoon nap. Then, the world would still, and the summation of all existence would take up residence in my belly. (less)

Does the fish in a fish sandwich count as "meat?"

What I think you're asking is, "What is more important to the sandwich, the bread or the sammich innards?"

Plato considered this same question shortly before his death in 347 BC. He was a big fan of lamb and tomato sandwiches. To his way of thinking: "A sandwich without innards is simply two slices of bread, and why would you eat two slices at once? Are you a glutton, or is there some imbalance in your soul?"

I side with Plato: one cannot individually consider the relative value of sandwich parts, because those parts alone are no longer parts of a sandwich. (less)

Scott Sigler is finished with The Crown Tower: Loved it. Heroic fantasy with a great Odd Couple relationship between two of the main characters. I listened to the audiobook, the narration was solid. Will definitely listen to the next book at some point in the future.

Thanks :) I finally got my hands on a copy and am enjoying it immensely. I dont want it to end.


Dustin Hertel I'm a slow reader when it comes to actual hard copy print (A.D.D., no matter how good the book I can't read too long in a sitting) so I'm only a couple chapters in... but Pandemic is awesome so far!
