Scott Sigler’s – Ancestor


Hey everyone.

I’ve been following, listening and reading New York Times Best Selling Author Scott Sigler for quite some time now and I REALLY like his stuff.  He does all the voices himself, puts his nose to the grindstone and get’s it out there for his ‘junkies’.  He sacrifices the comforts when he travels so that he may meet as many people as possible when he tours and from what I hear he’s an all around great guy.  I’ve spoken to him over e-mail and he really is pretty decent (don’t tell him I said that though).  🙂

Some of the work he has done is:

Earthcore – Podcast – Novel:

Deep below a desolate Utah mountain lies the largest platinum deposit ever discovered. A billion-dollar find, it waits for any company that can drill a world’s record, three-mile-deep mine shaft. EarthCore is the company with the technology, the resources and the guts to go after the mother lode. Young executive Connell Kirkland is the company’s driving force, pushing himself and those around him to uncover the massive treasure.

Infected – Podcast – Novel:

Perry Dawsey is 6-foot-5, 265 pounds of angry ex-linebacker. He knows all too well that if he doesn’t control his quick temper, people get hurt. Through constant focus, he has locked his violent past away in the deep dungeons of his mind. The infection changes everything.

Strange microscopic parasites tap into Perry’s bloodstream like tiny little vampires. They start as bright orange blisters, but soon take the shape of triangular growths just beneath his skin. The “Triangles,” as Perry calls them, try to control their host by manipulating hormone levels and flooding his body with neurotransmitters — imbalances of which cause paranoia, schizophrenia and excessive aggression. As Perry begins a desperate battle to cut the Triangles out of his body before it’s too late, his self-control dissolves into raging, murderous madness.

The Rookie – Podcast – Novel:

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.”

Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated.

Nocturnal – Podcast:

Something lives deep beneath the streets of San Francsico. Something that has been there for centuries, something that comes out at night … to feed on the dregs of society. A sub-culture, with its own myths, its own legends of leader named The King that will lead them out of bondage, and their own demon, a hunting shadow known only as Savior.

But the legends of Savior’s brutality have faded, the fear passed into stories told to frighten the young ones. When The King finally appears, just as foretold, the Nocturnals know their time has come — the time to come out from under the streets and hunt humanity in the open.

He combines sci-fi, horror, sports and more to create some interesting combinations.

He is reviving one of his podcasts and put it out in print form and he has released a video trailer for Ancestor.  Check it out then head on over and order his book.
