S. Zahler My new science fiction novel Corpus Chrome, Inc. is now widely available in paperback, hardback and kindle editions.

“CORPUS CHROME, INC describes one of the weirder post-singularity futures. The characters are very much alive. I was entertained throughout.” —Larry Niven, multiple Hugo and Nebula award winning author of the Ringworld series

“[We fell] completely under Zahler’s spell, buying into his near-future world and becoming so involved in his characters’ lives that, when the book ends, we are loath to leave these people and their world. A bravura literary performance.” —Dave Pitt, Booklist, Starred Review

“Zahler’s a fabulous story teller...”
—Kurt Russell, star of Escape from New York, Tombstone, Dark Blue, and Death Proof
