Meet the Author

The author has written since the age of 8, has received formal education in biochemistry (MD), mathematics (PhD) and law (MD). His main interest in writing is connected to character development, emotions, thinking processes and social conflicts from a somewhat biased point of view, many times contrary to the established line of thinking.

'Software Evolution' can be said to be the first and to this day the major work of the author, written at the age of 21, that he deemed to be presentable to the public. The book attempts to introduce several parallel story lines, and some important emotional and philosophical aspects of scientific research. The work is the third and final version of a project that was to be science fiction in the beginning but the sci-fi aspects completely disappeared in the end; what it evolved to could be termed drama instead. 'Software Evolution' was not only influenced by the author’s study subjects at the time of writing (natural sciences) but by the places and various social systems he had experienced in his childhood (80’s-early 90’s), socialism (Budapest), capitalism (New York) and protestant Puritanism (Bergen).

The book 'Wild Duck revisited' was greatly inspired by the second part of a ten-year stay in Bergen (Norway) that included high school and some university classes, and a short time spent at Fantoft Studentby (a student hostel, the ugliest building complex in named city), where all kinds of nationalities could be met. Many passages of the book are conversations that actually took place there; in such a way, the work shows some thoughts on the Scandinavian lifestyle from an outsider’s viewpoint.

The author had moved to the south since then. Lately, he has been working on a project called 'Enterprise downgrade' that incorporates thoughts on the social injustice, corruption and inequality of rights he often comes across there; many times executed by foreign northern companies and investments aided greatly by local elites.

In recent years, the author has been co leader of a contemporary modern art gallery profiling the interconnection of art, science and technology.

John Fajo is the author’s penname, after his grandfather, anglicized. Profile picture taken around 2002.
