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 1 month 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 1 month 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 1 month ago by Eric Elliott
