Scott E. Newton’s books include Five Dumb Guys Walk Into a Bar, Duane Digs a Hole and Our Missile Children.
His latest novel, Our Missile Children, might have been motivated by the thirty-seven years, nearly from its beginning, that he worked in the computer industry. The pending Singularity may have had something to do with it as well.
These days you might find Scott in the woods and mountains of Oregon, working on his next novel, painting watercolors, and being retired. Of course, the old desert rat often returns to the red-rock deserts of Utah or Arizona, where he would be happy to run into Hayduke himself out there. The two would likely hit it off famously, especially if Bonnie were along.
Scott considers his philosophy degree from Berkeley, as well as his time in a Buddhist monastery, indispensable foundations for everything he undertakes.
