A slightly misanthropic curmudgeon with an infrequent penchant for dark humor, George Berger has perpetrated a body of genre-defying fiction that stands as mute and terrifying testimony to the triumph of emotion over reason.
His first novel, Mendacities, is a dystopian adventure novel praised by reviewers for its “wry and authentic voice”, “worst title ever”, and “arty-farty pretentious” cover. Following its underwhelming non-success, he released a quirky almost-romantic novella, Stanley And His Sword, which received heady praise for its not-quite erotica sex scenes and unusually sympathetic depiction of ninjas.
His second novel, Without A Spark, was released in October 2011. Drawing on his real-life experience as an occasional domestic terrorism suspect (it was all a misunderstanding… honest), it’s a gripping thriller about life, love, and ecoterrorism. His third novel was a well-received romance novel—no, really—and then there are all the various novellas and short stories…
When not writing books that next-to-nobody actually reads, he serves as a freelance information analyst, tinkers with mostly vintage computers, thwarts terrorism, collects books, and thinks up exciting but untrue things to add to his various biographies. He is owned by a cat, rides an antique bicycle, and likes to cook.
