About the Author

In fourth grade, Andy Giesler fell in love with writing. His debut novel, Attack of the Dinosaurs, was seventeen pages long: the heart-pounding tale of Alaskan scientists using nuclear bombs to prospect for gasoline and-as happens all too often-inadvertently waking frozen dinosaurs. He promised himself that, one day, he'd write an even longer book. Many years later while reading bedtime stories to his kids, he fell in love with writing all over again. He decided it was time. Andy has been a library page, dairy science programmer, teacher, technical writer, and healthcare software developer. He's a husband, father, and nonprofit web consultant living in Madison, Wisconsin.


"[I]mpossible to put down...[S]eamlessly blends elements of science fiction, dystopian fiction, horror, and mystery...[F]ans who enjoy grand, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it narratives, such as Stephen King's The Stand, Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy, and Walter M. Miller Jr.'s A Canticle for Leibowitz, will find Giesler's debut nothing short of a storytelling masterwork." -- BlueInk Review (Starred Review)

"In every way, this eye-opening post-apocalyptic tale is a true page-turner...The Nothing Within is a fresh and ingenious take on the post-apocalyptic novel...[A] densely woven futuristic tale that maintains suspense from its first page to its last." -- Foreword Clarion Reviews (β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…)

"Crafty surprises abound in this debut novel...[P]henomenal worldbuilding...An often mesmerizing end-of-the-world adventure." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[R]eaders will be delighted by the fresh, original take of this end-of-the-world saga, and will find The Nothing Within and its progression unexpectedly original, refreshingly revealing, and a standout compared to the usual dystopian exploration." -- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
