Sylvain Neuvel dropped out of high school at age 15. Along the way, he has been a journalist, worked in soil decontamination, sold ice cream in California, and peddled furniture across Canada. He received a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Chicago. He taught linguistics in India, and worked as a software engineer in Montreal. He is also a certified translator, though he wishes he were an astronaut. He likes to tinker, dabbles in robotics and is somewhat obsessed with Halloween. He absolutely loves toys; his girlfriend would have him believe that he has too many, so he writes about aliens and giant robots as a blatant excuse to build action figures (for his son, of course).

Let me tell you about your future. You’re going to love this book. A fascinating premise, brilliantly executed. THE FUTURE IS YOURS is a thrilling scifi adventure you simply can’t put down and a masterful modern take on the epistolary novel.

“Family has a way of bringing out the worst in people. Every people.”
Sylvain Neuvel, Sleeping Giants

“If you fall in love with someone, there’s a good chance the person won’t love you back. Hatred, though, is usually mutual. If you despise someone, it’s pretty much a given they’re also not your biggest fan.”
Sylvain Neuvel, Sleeping Giants

“It would make things easier for both of us, especially for you, if we could forgo the part of this conversation where you take me for a complete idiot...”
