Meet the Author

J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive autodidact attempting to write his way out of the loony bin.


A self-aggrandizing science fiction and fantasy author who publishes lurid stories and, worse, the occasional popular philosophy article, he is also a very minor authority on Open Source media production (a topic on which he is, unfortunately, published regularly in LinuxJournal).


In addition to his wanton abuse of the printed word, he unscrupulously uses his decade-long experience as an audio and video producer with his painfully florid and gritty writing style to create deeply immersive audio universes. This habit, which he indulges in public, has garnered him seven Parsec nominations and helped him make his first professional fiction and philosophy sales (a trend which, for the good of the world at large, we can only hope abates soon). Meanwhile, his growing, rabid fan-base is currently plotting to imprison him and force him to produce endless new literary abominations for their amusement. We can only hope they succeed.


Should you be so inclined, you can communicate with this shady character, as well as find podcasts, articles, and other literary abominations at jdsawyer.net

Antithesis! This is where it all starts. If you're new to the universe J. Daniel Sawyer put together, this is a great bite-sized place to start. This is a short story, rather than a full novel. However, it packs a lot of punch, and gives us a glimpse of how two pivotal characters in the storyline got their start. Great read, highly recommended. It's an excellent, character-driven piece with set against a painstakingly well-researched sci-fi setting. Grab now!
