STEVEN R. BOYETT sold his first novel at 21 and went on to publish novels, short stories, feature screenplays, and comic books. In 1999 he took some time off from writing, and during this period he learned to play the didgeridoo, a unique Australian wind instrument. This led him to learn about digital recording, which led to composing electronica, which led to DJing. He produces three of the world's most popular music podcasts: the groundbreaking Podrunner and Podrunner: Intervals (workout music mixes), and Groovelectric (dance music mixes of what he calls New Old Funk).
Steve has played clubs in Hollywood, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Reno, as well as Burning Man. He has been a martial arts instructor, professional paper marbler, advertising copywriter, legal proofreader, writing teacher, website editor, chapbook publisher, and composer. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two frighteningly intelligent parrots.
Author's byword provides a good assessment of the book -- it is good reading for a first novel started by an adolescent, and the ending is a bit abrupt and unsatisfying. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
One of the best book I have ever read. Read it for the first time when I was about 14 in about 1985 and I found it in the stacks while working in the city library. Read morePublished 15 days ago by sms
Great story with a really bad ending. Also, many of the weapon/martial arts details are just dead-wrong. Otherwise, it was a great concept and a really fun read... until the end.Published 19 days ago by Eric Elliott
This story was entertaining, and a little reminiscent of Terry Brooks. Ariel starts out slowly and a bit silly, and I wondered if I'd be able to finish it. Read morePublished 21 days ago by kp
This was an interesting take on the dystopian issues. There was not any disaster related to human activity. The laws of physics just changed with no notice, no explanation. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Amazon Customer
I think it's good, every now and then, to stumble across a really awful book, if only to make clearer what all the good books are doing well. Read morePublished 26 days ago by A. Sullivan
Excellent subject and story line, the only thing I did not like is the abrupt ending, this story deserves another 2-300 pages.Published 29 days ago by Larry B Acock
