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).
Before he was published, Scott built a large online following by giving away his self-recorded audiobooks as free, serialized podcasts. His loyal fans, who named themselves “Junkies,” have downloaded over 30 million individual episodes of his stories and interact daily with Scott and each other in the social media space.

Scott reinvented book publishing when he released EARTHCORE as the world’s first

My partner and I are building a mini-empire where we get to create the things we want to create, and make a living doing it. What I care most about is that you read PANDEMIC and come out of it thinking, "I would have gladly paid twice as much for that and still got my money's worth."

My goal is to take you away and let you lose yourself in my creation. If I do that, I know I am making lives a little bit better, and that's the reward. I put everything I can into a book to make it as good as it can be — everything else will work itself out in the long run. (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)

To win his sister’s freedom, Quentin challenged the Portath known as “The Gouger” to a duel to the death. He’ll have to fight with the awkward “double crescent” knives, the traditional weapon of that race. If Quentin steps into the stone pit for this fight, will he make it out alive?

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!
