About the Author

When erstwhile geek Geoff Dutton abandoned his career as a technical communicator, he reformed himself by unlearning expository writing and struck out to write whatever suited his fancy. Having spent the prime of his life telling computer users what they should and should not do, he made up for lost time by peering into the dark side of high tech to expose those who deploy it as a weapon of societal destruction. Aside from revealing chicanery at progressivepilgrim.review and counterpunch.org, the project closest to his heart has been birthing the novel Turkey Shoot, which too enters dark digital recesses that a master hacker then proceeds to compromise.
His years of observing liberation movements empowered Geoff to craft a believable cast of radical activists and convincingly animate their interactions. His early days as an urbanologist and cartographer equipped him to vividly portray cities and landscapes far from home. But what most moved him to complete the three-year project was pent-up outrage over the sorry plight of refugees from war zones. Displaced by homegrown bullies and gratuitous military adventures that shattered their lives, they become objects of fear and loathing. That some turn to violence ought not to surprise. Turkey Shoot turns the genre inside out to reveal what motivates so-called evildoers to confront empire and injustice. Call it literary blowback. Find it at online bookstores everywhere and at Perfidy.Press.

When erstwhile geek Geoff Dutton abandoned his career as a technical communicator, he reformed himself by unlearning expository writing and struck out to write whatever suited his fancy. Having spent the prime of his life telling computer users what the should and should not do, he made up for lost time by peering into the dark side of high tech to expose those who deploy it as a weapon of societal destruction. Aside from publishing his troublesome findings at progressivepilgrim.review and at counterpunch.org, the project closest to his heart has been birthing the novel Turkey Shoot, which also explores dark digital recesses, only from a black-hat perspective. Being a long-time student of the politics of liberation helped Geoff to craft a convincing cast of radical activists and animate their interactions. His early days as an urbanologist and cartographer equipped him to limn vivid portrayals of cities and landscapes far from home. But what constantly motivated him to see through this three-year project was pent-up outrage over the sorry plight of refugees from war zones whose lives have been shattered by homegrown bullies and gratuitous military adventures, only to become displaced objects of fear and loathing. Turkey Shoot turns the thriller genre inside out to reveal what motivates so-called evildoers to confront empire and injustice. Call it literary blowback.
