About this author

Kevin Egan graduated with a B.A. in English from Cornell University, where he studied creative writing under Dan McCall (Jack the Bear) and Robert Morgan (Gap Creek). He is the author of five novels, with his sixth, Midnight, to be published by Forge in July, 2013.

His first novel, The Perseus Breed, combined a science fiction story-line with strong mystery genre elements. In the book, Borley Share’s obsessive quest to understand the sudden disappearance of his first serious girlfriend uncovers the existence of an alien race using the Earth as a nursery to raise its young.

Writing as Conor Daly, he published a three-book mystery series featuring Kieran Lenahan, who quits the practice of law to become a golf pro. In Local Knowledge, a dead...more

Midnight by Kevin Egan
"A great mystery. I was taken from a few pages in. The end was unexpected too. Grey characters all around, who to root for?"
Midnight by Kevin Egan

Excellent and interesting mix of cutting edge science and edge-of-your seat thrills.

“It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

Clark Blaise
“Art, she said, is more nuanced than life. If a teacher is lecturing and looking out of smudged windows, smeared with obscenities (sure enough, ours were) it doesn't mean anything, in life, except that the cleaning crews are lazy. But in a story, if a professor is lecturing and the windows are smudged, we are obliged to think that his words are similarly untrandescent, right? ...
One of the great problems with artists, she said, is that they don't keep nuance and nature distinct. Import raw nature into a story or a poem and you've only ruined a story. Import nuance into life and you'll go mad. There'll suddenly be too much significance everywhere, a message in everything.”
Clark Blaise

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”

Jim Harrison
“As an English major I was familiar with the stories of dozens of writers trying to get their work done among the multifarious diversions of the world and the hurdles of their own vices. A professor had said that what saved writers is that they, like politicians, had the illusion of destiny that allowed them to overcome obstacles no matter how nominal their work.”
Jim Harrison, The English Major
