Scott Sigler’s works combine many genres, including science fiction, horror and thriller. His second major published novel, Contagious, made the New York Times best seller list. Its precursor, Infected, has been optioned as a motion picture production by Rogue Pictures. Scott was also responsible for releasing the world’s first podcast-only novel, Earthcore. All of his stories are freely available to listen to as audiobooks in serialised form at www.scottsigler.com.
The two books by Scott currently available in Australia, Infected and Contagious, are a combination of horror, thriller and science fiction. They follow the story of Perry Dawsey, an ex-linebacker with a history of anger management issues who becomes infected by strange microscopic parasites. As the infection progresses, his self-control is put to the test.
Scott is releasing a self-published hardcover of his novel The Rookie. Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, The Rookie is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of “Any Given Sunday” with the space opera style of “Star Wars” and the criminal underworld of “The Godfather.” The book is due for release in September 2009, and can be pre-ordered at Scott’s website.
