More About the Author

New York Times best-selling novelist Scott Sigler is author of the INFECTED trilogy (INFECTED, CONTAGIOUS and PANDEMIC), ANCESTOR and NOCTURNAL, hardcover hardcover thrillers from Crown Publishing; and the co-founder of Empty Set Entertainment, which publishes his Galactic Football League series (THE ROOKIE, THE STARTER, THE ALL-PRO and THE MVP).

Before he was published, Scott built a large online following by giving away his self-recorded audiobooks as free, serialized podcasts. His loyal fans, who named themselves "Junkies," have downloaded over eight million individual episodes of his stories and interact daily with Scott and each other in the social media space.

Scott reinvented book publishing when he released EARTHCORE as the world's first "podcast-only" novel. Released in twenty weekly episodes, EARTHCORE harkened back to the days of serialized radio fiction. His innovative use of technology puts him at the forefront of modern-day publishing and has garnered brand-name exposure among hundreds of thousands of fiction fans and technology buffs.

He's been covered in Time Magazine, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, Publisher's Weekly, The Huffington Post, Business Week and Fangoria. He still records his own audiobooks and gives away every story - for free - to his Junkies at www.ScottSigler.com.

A Michigan native, Scott lives in San Francisco but still roots for his beloved Detroit Lions.

Scott Sigler takes just enough reality and science to make his fiction even scarier. Everyone can relate to feeling sick and horrible. That is what makes the pain that the main character in Infected goes through that much more real to the reader. From start to finish you won't know where this is going. As you connect with the main character you'll go along with him for the ride of his life to an ending you won't see coming. If you enjoy thrillers, horror or science fiction then this is a book for you. Get it now!

Dew Phillips and his partner in the CIA are on a top secret mission, chasing after madmen who are homicidal and suicidal, possibly infected with some new disease. Teamed with them is Margaret Montoya from the CCID, called upon to run autopsies on the victims of the infection. There's just one problem, there's never enough remains to autopsy, the corpses either burnt or liquefied. What they need is a fresh or alive host.

Perry Dawsey has a different life from what he once thought he'd have. Once a star linebacker, a knee injury cut short his dreams of wealth and fame in pro-football, leaving him nothing more than a computer technician living in a tiny apartment on a mediocre salary. The one thing Perry still has from his football days is his explosive temper. One day Perry begins to itch. What starts as what he thinks is a rash soon turns into a grisly discovery. He's infected with something, and being distrustful of doctors decides to take care of the problem himself.

As Dew and Margaret come closer to understanding the infection, Perry's health spirals downward, until strange triangles appear on his body. And the triangles are sentient.

Sigler has written one of the best novels I've ever read. It starts fast and keeps going at breakneck speed. In several chapters he documents the course of the "seedlings" and drops hints at their construct. As the story unfolds, the terror elevates to intense levels, dragging you helplessly towards the climatic conclusion. I read the book in a day, unable to set it down for an instant. Sigler's style is flawless, character switching and timeline expertly executed, and imagination wildly impressive. He's created a truly horrifying monster.

Jack Wakes Up (Jack Palms Crime Mysteries)
Officially they might say that Scott Sigler is a horror writer, but in hindsight, when we look back we'll say he's a writer of major order who crosses genres and does whatever he needs to do to get his story told.
In INFECTED, he's woven the threads of a disease, a man who's contracted it, and the man sent to hunt the disease down and find out what the hell it is. So it might make you kill a few folks (your friends and family), what is this thing really? Perry Dawsey's a great character: deep enough and nuanced so we feel for him, even sympathize as he starts to go totally nuts. THAT's what makes this book so unbelievably, insanely scary: you can actually put yourself in this guy's shoes! Got an itch? Oh, man...
In the hands of Scott Sigler, you don't read a book like this, you strap yourself in and come out the other side. INFECTED will tear you through it so fast you'll want to go back and read it again. Not only has Scott revolutionized the way we'll find out about books from now on with his podcasts, he's delivered on the goods 115% to back it up. Whether you've listened to the podcast already or will run out and listen to it now, you got to get your hands on INFECTED and read it as soon as you can. This book stops at nothing to rock you AND your world!

What a sick book! Only a demented mind such as Sigler's could come up with something so original, compelling and horrifying. I couldn't put it down. Does that mean I'm sick too?

This one is definitely not for the squeamish. Sigler tells the story so convincingly and with such detail that I could almost feel the pain.

If I had to rank Sigler's books, I'd put this first, then Ancestor and then Earthcore.

I got hooked on Sigler back with his first Earthcore podcast. I've always been a fan of horror/science fiction and Sigler delivers a combination of these two genres in an Aliens-meets-the-Shining fashion that is sure to please. I have copies of Sigler's two previous books and I confess that I liked Earthcore and Ancestor slightly better. That being said, I still very much enjoyed Infested and it is well worth purchasing. Pure twisted entertainment through the eyes of the insane, but strangely engrossing, Perry.

I purchased this book thinking it was a zombie novel. I was somewhat disappointed when I found that it wasn't but the more I read, the more I became engrossed in the story. Wow, what a story! It was hard to put down, and when I did, I thought about it, I even dreamed about it. Some parts were so creepy that I had to put the book down and compose myself before I could go on. I finished this book Tuesday and I'm still thinking about it. It's only a story for heaven's sake but - what if? We would NOT survive. Chilling, thought provoking and very SCARY. Thanks Scott Sigler, I'm now a fan!
