Sarah Mazza is a Melbourne based author of dark, dystopian sci-fi and historical fantasy novels. She grew up on Lord of the Rings. It was Isobelle Carmody’s Obernewtyn Chronicles that inspired her to write her first book, as she put down one after its cliff hanger ending and thought…I could write a book. A deep love of novels with outrageous plot twists and detailed world-building motivates her, and so her influences are George RR. Martin, N.K. Jemisin, Raymond E. Feist and Bernard Cornwell.

Sarah Mazza is a mad scientist, or perhaps just a normal biochemist, and channels these interests and knowledge into her fiction. She has worked with death rays (irradiators for cancer research), mutants (GMO technology) and Breaking Bad style experimen

"Thank you to the author for providing me with an advance copy to review!

This book was very propulsive, it was one that I just kept doing “one more chapter”. I wasn’t sure where the first half was going, but there kept being a feeling of something st" Read more of this review »

"An extremely dark journey into a bleak future for mankind where technology may have progressed, but the loneliness, trauma and brutal regimes that exist in our own times are still rampant.

I found this to be a really brisk read even with such hard hit" Read more of this review »

"This book was very enjoyable. I mainly just read an hour or so a night before sleep. I was looking forward to this time (not always the case lol). The writing is excellent. The protagonist and his friends are basically addicts and pretty marginalized" Read more of this review »

“Live your life. Don’t subscribe to other people’s ideals because this is what happens. One way or another, it will crush you.”
Sarah Mazza, I Dream in Color

“I never thought I would choose a place like this. That I would even consider giving up my existence, to lie in a bed of lies. I never expected a lot of things to happen in my life. I try not to think about anything at all. Especially not how I become this; a man without hope. A man without dreams.”
Sarah Mazza, I Dream in Color

“My name is Alex Johansson, and I am a man who chose this. I chose to give up my body. To become lost in a dream. To never wake up again. Except that I did.”
Sarah Mazza, I Dream in Color

“I never thought I would choose a place like this. That I would even consider giving up my existence, to lie in a bed of lies. I never expected a lot of things to happen in my life. I try not to think about anything at all. Especially not how I become this; a man without hope. A man without dreams.”
Sarah Mazza, I Dream in Color

“How long does it take for two armies to destroy each other when one has an abundance of bodies and the other an abundance of bullets?”
Sarah Mazza, I Dream in Color

“I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.”
H. P. Lovecraft

“The world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind.”
H. P. Lovecraft

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.”
H.P. Lovecraft

Trish Hi there. Thanks for your friend request. The answer is: they are all the same plant, genetically. Humans just altered the base plant a little here and a little there and now we get all these variations. Which is especially interesting since I love some and loathe the others. *lol*

Anne Hi Sarah,
Happy to be your reading friend.
I see you like series - I tend to get bored after 2 or 3. But my husband has been telling me for years to read NK Jemisin, I just haven’t got round to her yet. Too many books, not enough time!
Looking forward to comparing reads,
Anne

Hey Robyn, I am the same, I hardly use my Facebook account, only Goodreads and my bookish Instagram account. I should give the Goodreads challenge a go, it's nice to keep track of how many books I have read as well. I'll keep an eye out for your reviews, I've been trying to write a few myself as well.


message 3: by Robyn

Robyn Blaber Hi Sarah,

Thanks for the add. It's interesting how different my Goodreads friends are than my Facebook friends. I've actually dumped FB... since... who has time for that? lol So this is the bulk of my social media. I try to review everything I read, but the reviews are anecdotal and usually more about me than the book... but I try. Meanwhile, maybe consider the Goodreads challenge? I swear I read more books because of it.


Karen’s Library Hi Sarah! Thanks for the friend request! 💕
