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.

Return to City 17

Aside from a few interesting titles like Arizona Sunshine and Rick & Morty VR, there haven't been a lot of GREAT titles in VR. There are zombie simulators and gun range simulators, but I've probably spent more time in Google Earth than anything else. So it was with complete gut-dropping glee that I heard Valve was releasing a new Half-Life story exclusively in VR. Of course, there was that... Read more of this blog post »

Although funny at times, I didn't enjoy it as much as his other books, which seemed more polished. Still, a worthy read if you're a fan.

Tom Stoppard
“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, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

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.”

“She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

“I wonder, as I look up at this softly enameled sky, so faintly tinted, which does not bulge today with heavy rain clouds but smiles like a piece of old china...”
Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

“One by one I’ve fucked myself out of all these free meals which I had planned so carefully.”
