About the Author

Sarah Colombo lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This is her first book.

Nate Ragolia was labeled as "weird" early in elementary school by a little blonde girl he liked, and it stuck. He's a lifelong lover of science fiction and a nerd/geek. His first book, There You Feel Free, was published by 1888center's Black Hill Press in 2015. A year later, he founded BONED: A Collection of Skeletal Writings. And in 2017, he co-founded Spaceboy Books LLC. Nate also creates webcomics, writes essays and articles, and pets dogs. He can usually be found in Denver, CO.

Reviews

"...Colombo's characterization is strong; the portrait of HDT's founder, Losi West, is especially well-rounded and poignant. Also, the author's portrayal of the universal desire for connection is vividly real, moving, and relatable. A thoughtful, trenchant adventure story." - Kirkus Reviews

"Sarah Colombo's debut novel, Subterranean, is a rollicking adventure set in a not-too-distant future--one in which most people are completely consumed by technology, while others long for the past: whether that be the 1990s of ravers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, and Nirvana, or Henry David Thoreau's mid-nineteenth century 'cabin of clay and wattles made.' But this book is also, like the best work of Vonnegut, Bradbury, and Philip K. Dick, a serious critique of our culture and the dangerous road down which we're headed. Subterranean will have readers simultaneously weeping for what once was and what could potentially be, while still giving them pause to laugh at all the human folly in between."

- David Armand, author of Harlow and My Mother's House

"In Subterranean, Sarah Colombo creates a rich and unsettling world of ubiquitous screens and surveillance, snarky robots and tech-resistant cults. The themes of struggle for human connection and establishing one's identity in an over-documented and ego-obsessed culture are both surprising and familiar. Subterranean is a sci-fi adventure with humor and heart."

- Bridget Erin, playwright of Sonata for Four Hands and In Our Backyard
