Daniel Verastiqui writes dystopian cyber-thrillers from his poorly ventilated home office in Austin, Texas. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a BA in English, but doesn't really see how that's relevant to you enjoying his books. His "writing deal" is all about exploring relationships and identity in the context of ubiquitous technology, pervasive violence, and frequent nudity.

He's uh... he's alright, man. And so are his books.

State of the WIP: The Most Exciting Line

Last night, I powered through the last six chapters of Brigham Plaza to get a sense of how they feel as a whole. I put a lot of work into making the climax of the book satisfying while still leaving a few stingers in the denouement to help you come down. And yet, it was the final page, after the epilogue, that I found to contain the most exciting line of the entire book. At least, in my estimat...

I liked this book, but it wasn't at all what I was expecting after Annihilation. The last 10% of Authority is awesome and is everything I wanted to see in a sequel, but the first 90% seemed more focused on workplace politics and social awkwardness. ...more

Fantastic. Aside from the opening scene, this wasn't quite the scary book I thought it was going to be. In fact, it felt more like a precursor to The Institute than a sequel to The Shining. Still, the way King moves through this book keeps you ...more

“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.”

Tom Stoppard
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
