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.
