About the Author

"Just when I thought I'd had my fill of dystopian novels, along comes the The Guild of Saint Cooper; a playful, imaginative, and wildly unpredictable ride through alternate Seattle. Scanlon delights in turning history on its ear in this daring and thoughtful high wire act of a novel." --Jonathan Evison, author of West of Here and The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving

Praise for Border Run:
"Like a Philip K. Dick of the American Southwest, or a futuristic Cormac McCarthy." --Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nightttime and Some for the Day

"Strikes a flawless balance between satire and heart, adventure adn meditation." --Laura Van Den Berg, author The Isle of Youth

Praise for Forecast:
"Shya Scanlon's brilliant first novel inhabits the skin of science fiction while setting off fireworks more extravagantly imagined and coolly displayed than those ever fired into the night air by any conventional SF novel." --Peter Straub, author of Lost Boy, Lost Girl and Black House

"Tipping its hat to authors like Stacey Levine, China Miéville and Jonathan Lethem, Scanlon's novel is part Science Fiction, part noir, part road narrative and part love story." --Brian Evenson, author of Altmann's Tongue and The Wavering Knife

Praise for In This Alone Impulse:
"If Gertrude Stein ran track for Mineola Prep, she'd text these alert, convivial poems from the team bus." --Joyelle McSweeney, author of The Red Bird and Nylund: The Sarcographer
