I tried several times to write a version of Dark Matter… getting into SPOILER TERRITORY HERE… Three separate storylines had been teasing me, and I’d tried and failed to write them all separately. One storyline involved the box. Another involved the idea of meeting yourself. And the last was about a man being hopelessly lost in time. The novelist Marcus Sakey is one of my good friends, and we always meet up at the inception stage of a new book to pressure-check each other on our ideas. While we were in Chicago two years ago, I was pitching each of these ideas to him separately, when it occurred to me they were actually all part of the same story. They suddenly clicked together, like puzzle pieces, and I was off and running. I find the writing process endlessly mysterious and wonderful.(less)

“We're more than the sum total of our choices, that all the paths we might have taken factor somehow into the math of our identity.”
Blake Crouch, Dark Matter

“No one tells you it’s all about to change, to be taken away. There’s no proximity alert, no indication that you’re standing on the precipice. And maybe that’s what makes tragedy so tragic. Not just what happens, but how it happens: a sucker punch that comes at you out of nowhere, when you’re least expecting it. No time to flinch or brace.”
Blake Crouch, Dark Matter

“It's terrifying when you consider that every thought we have, every choice we could possibly make, branches off into a new world.”
Blake Crouch, Dark Matter

Stephen Ross Blake, are you doing any book events in the New York / New Jersey area in promotion of Recursion?

Stephen Ross I just ordered Recursion. I can't wait to dig into it!

message 5: by Art

Art the Turtle of Amazing Girth I was super geeked to see on my notifications that you accepted my friend request, it's always incredible to me when an author I'm digging is friendly.

Loved the Pines trilogy, am thinking about watching the show soon.

Any chance you are thinking of a sub-story about Tobias and his nomad adventures?

Great work, got Dark Matter staring me in the face for an upcoming read.

Edward Lorn Thanks for the friend request, Blake, and congrats on all your success. Couldn't've happened to a better dude.

Jennifer Will you be writing any more Letty stories or will it all be for the TV show? I really loved how Grab ended and look forward to seeing Letty's "professional" development.

message 2: by Daisy

Daisy Is there any chance Dark Matter will have a sequel? I just finished it today and was blown away. I was left wanting more at the end. Science-fiction is not usually what I like to read but I'm loving all your books.

I received an arc from netgalley. Thank you so much!

message 1: by Wayne

Wayne Lemmons Just had to say it. You write great books, but your reviews aren't far behind. Nice!
