Daniel Suarez is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and former senior systems analyst to Fortune 1000 companies. His nearly two decades designing mission-critical software informed his 2006 breakout cyber thriller, Daemon — a book that anticipated the rise of AI-powered social media manipulation, cryptocurrencies, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, and much more. Daniel’s unique brand of high-tech fiction explores the causes and impacts of rapid technological change, and he has a track record for anticipating what’s next. He has since written a total of seven techno-thrillers and science fiction novels on topics ranging from cyber war, autonomous robotic weapons, human agency, genetic editing, and private space exploration — with space the focus of his two most recent books, Delta-v and Critical Mass (part of a planned trilogy).
With an enduring fascination for space, Daniel was inspired at a young age by the works of Gerard K. O’Neill, Carl Sagan, and many others. Daniel is currently working on the third novel in his Delta-v trilogy, an epic narrative about private space exploration that depicts the journey from our climate-imperiled, Earthbound present to a dynamic and growing interplanetary civilization. Informed by numerous consultations with leading scientists, successful space entrepreneurs, and government officials, the Delta-v series utilizes real science, technology, and to the greatest degree possible, economic and astropolitical realities to dramatize humanity’s transition to a true spacefaring species.
