About this author

Sean O’Hara was born in Stuttgart, West Germany during the last years of the Cold War. Both his parents served in the US Army, though his mother took an honorable discharge after his birth. His family moved to Fort Clayton, Panama in 1982, and they were still there when World War III broke out two years later. His mother, still a reservist, returned to active service during the Soviet-Cuban invasion of Panama, and died during the Battle of Darien. His father was reported missing in action after the fall of the Canal Zone, and none of the surviving Soviet records list him as a prisoner of war.

Mizuki Nomura
“Yes. We will live the rest of our lives in hell. It's not so bad: as long as you're prepared for it, you can live anywhere.”
Mizuki Nomura, Book Girl and the Suicidal Mime

“Every mystery novel I ever read, the great detective was such an arrogant fuck you could replace 70% of his dialogue with 'Are you stupid?' and the conversation would still make sense.”
NisiOisiN, Zaregoto 1: Book 1: The Kubikiri Cycle

Hitomi Kanehara
“God has to be a sadist to give people life.”
Hitomi Kanehara, Snakes and Earrings

“God is a man of such perfect, flawless character that he only watches over everyone equally -- the strong and the weak, the rich and the poor -- and never plays favorites or reaches His hand out to any of them. Oh, what a wonderful God. He can just drop dead.”
Yukako Kabei, Kieli, Volume 1: The Dead Sleep in the Wilderness

Hitomi Kanehara
“If you were God, what kind of human would you create?" I asked.

"I wouldn't change how they look. But I would make them as dumb as chickens. So dumb they'd never even imagine the existence of a god.”
Hitomi Kanehara, Snakes and Earrings
