Craig DiLouie

Craig DiLouie is an author of popular thriller, apocalyptic/horror, and sci-fi/fantasy fiction.

In hundreds of reviews, his novels have been praised for their strong characters, action, and gritty realism. Each book promises an exciting experience with people you’ll care about in a world that feels real.

These works have been nominated for major literary awards such as the Bram Stoker Award and Audie Award, translated into multiple languages, and optioned for film.

DiLouie's new novel is One of Us.

Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. His reply:
I recently finished Sisyphean, Japanese author Dempow Torishima’s biopunk novella collection. Torishima produced a highly inventive and wholly immersive universe in which genetically engineered life is both technology and economy.

Bizarre, grotesque, and difficult to understand, it’s a demanding but rewarding read. I have nothing but admiration for an author who can create an entirely convincing and strikingly original universe from raw imagination.

Currently, I’m reading Shadow’s Fall, the first novel in a cyberpunk series by Ron Bender. I haven’t read this genre since Mona Lisa Overdrive, and I’m having fun with it. The world building is terrific—with just enough technology to spice the story rather than take it over—and the action scenes are incredible.

Next up on my reading list is Josiah Bancroft’s Senlin Ascends, about man who explores a fantastical, vast Tower of Babel while searching for his wife.
