About the Author

Matthew Kagle was the youngest of six children born to cattle ranchers in Emblem, Wyoming. He graduated elementary school two years early and went on to study high energy physics at Carnegie Mellon University. He was expelled after an experiment he was running caused university's linear accelerator to detonate. He quit physics to explore his love of the sea, eventually becoming captain of the Grandcamp (a cargo frigate) which capsized after an unexplained blast in the hold. When his lifeboat arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area, he decided to stay, working at Vacuum Genesis, a video game company ( The first game he designed was recalled from the market due to a programming fault that caused hard drives to accelerate until they broke into high-velocity shrapnel. He moved on to teaching, working at several small colleges and universities, but quit when some of his students spontaneously combusted upon entering the workforce. This is his first published novel. Handle it carefully. You can follow Matthew's blog at His Twitter account is @makagle. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Matthew Kagle is a game designer, teacher, and father of two. He's also a front.

About ten years ago, when he was teaching at a small private college, he overheard four English professors complaining they were having trouble getting their works published. Several were afraid their works were too controversial and would get them fired. Others were worried about being doxxed.

Matthew offered to present their writing to an old college friend who worked at one of the Big Six publishers. The friend suggested they pick a single pseudonym (in part to throw off text analysis identification) for all of them.

Matthew proved to be such an effective front man, they chose him.
