“I think Marusek could be the one sci- fi writer in a million with the potential to make an increasingly indifferent audience care about the genre again, and he could do it without compromising his voice or dumbing down his subject matter.” ~New York Times Book Review

“David Marusek, showing a potentially volatile synergy of technology and human foibles, is a writer who gives the impression that he’s been to the future, seen it work, and has come back to tell us all about it.” ~Locus

INSPIRED BY ALASKA

David Marusek wheeling books into snow cave

Marusek moved to Alaska in the 1970s with the view of establishing himself somewhere likely to be spared the nuclear Armageddon that he was sure was imminent. Somewhere he could live a self-reliant subsistence lifestyle. Three decades later, he lives in Fairbanks, just up the road from the missile silos of the neocons’ Star Wars initiative. In other words, at ground zero.


Some have theorized this has more than a little to do with the subject matters and characters he offers up on the page.

The Confessional

We asked & our authors answered…


Well, Marusek hasn’t yet. Soon, he says. In the meantime, we discovered how he likes his readers from an old interview:

intelligent, curious, capable and willing to entertain absurd notions of reality, optimistic, not too prissy, not on anabolic steroids, loves wordplay, appreciates ironic humor
