Geek, science fiction fan, novelist, and essayist, A. J. is passionate about all things nerdy. He has a PhD in neuroscience and cell biology, alongside a degree in literature, and he is a member of the Society of Authors. The mysteries of the human mind, astronomy, and quantum physics have captivated his imagination since childhood. A. J.’s new series Vega Blues combines all the exciting features of space science fiction—galactic empires, spaceships, androids—with hardboiled and cyberpunk.
Planet: Vega Tres. Population: 13 billion. Governments: None.
Detective Roy Deneb is a troubled soul. Loner, cynic, adrenaline junkie, and he’s damn good at his job. His specialty—undead cyborgs.
Zombies, wraiths, vampires—the colonists of Vega Tres gave old names to radically new and deadly types of beings. But in the urban jungle of Twilight City, Roy is the apex predator.
When a mysterious woman offers him an apparently simple job, he’s far from imagining that his life is about to change forever. He will have to assemble a team of outlaws to take on the greatest challenge of his life: defeat the CEO of an all-powerful corporation.
On the dangerous, lawless world that is Vega Tres, Roy discovers that there is more to life than mere survival—and that there’s a cause worth fighting for.
Genres: science fiction, space opera, cyberpunk.
