About the Author

Robert J. Sawyer -- "the dean of Canadian science fiction," according to the CBC, and a Globe and Mail and Maclean's bestseller -- is the only Canadian to have won all three of the world's top awards for best science-fiction novel of the year: the Hugo, the Nebula, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. A member of both The Order of Canada and The Order of Ontario, Rob has won more Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards ("Auroras") than anyone else in history. The ABC TV series FlashForward was based on his novel of the same name; The Downloaded is his twenty-fifth novel. A popular TEDx and keynote speaker with over 700 radio and TV interviews under his belt, Rob physically lives in Mississauga and in cyberspace he's at sfwriter.com.

Reviews

"Hope wins out in this triumph of a postapocalyptic tale from Hugo and Nebula award winner Sawyer . . . Sawyer keeps the stakes climbing ever higher as he toggles between the perspectives of his disparate cast. A smattering of droll humor breaks up the gloom and plot twists aplenty keep the pages flying. Sci-fi fans will eat this up." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"The Downloaded absolutely sizzles with fascinating ideas. You want space travel, a ruined Earth, virtual worlds, a cast of relatable characters, and a glimpse into the labyrinth of human destiny? Look no further: this book has all that and more." --Robert Charles Wilson, Hugo Award-winning author of Spin

"The Downloaded is a wonderful demonstration of Sawyer's deep understanding of -- and compassion for -- people, regardless who or what they are, or even what they have done. It's a rare and potent humanity that elevates his work high above the rest." --Julie E. Czerneda, Aurora Award-winning author of To Each This World

"In The Downloaded, Sawyer proves he's not just a master at using science fiction to address social issues but also a master at portraying diverse characters." --James Alan Gardner, Theodore Sturgeon Award-winning author of Commitment Hour

"The Downloaded is a wicked-smart thrill ride from start to finish. I loved it." --Sylvain Neuvel, bestselling author of A History of What Comes Next

"One of the best SF novels I've read in years." --Allen Steele, Hugo Award-winning author of Coyote
