About

Daniel Verastiqui writes Science Fiction.

His novels focus on relationships and identity in the larger context of technology, explosions, and gratuitous nudity. He draws inspiration from his obsession with technology as well as his professional work in Austin’s high-tech startup scene.

Daniel claims to live in Austin, Texas with his beautiful wife Dominique, his precocious son El Matador, and his two dogs, Cheyenne and Jetson, but who knows if any of that is true.

His books are pretty awesome, and he recommends you start with his latest novel, Por Vida, and work backwards.

Good book overall. This book was pretty good overall but I was let down by the ending. I realize not all books have to end happy, but this was so sad at the end. I would have liked to see something with a little more hope. Still, good book that I enjoyed.

An unexpected gem. I had zero expectations going into this book. It had been sitting on my Kindle for ages and I remembered nothing about it. Anyway, I’m glad I started reading because it’s FANTASTIC. A lot of SF theses days seems to congregate around certain themes and tropes, but Veneer is something very different indeed. It takes an emerging idea (augmented reality) and runs with it into the distant future. The writing is really tight, the story grips you right from the start, the characters are fully realized, and the central conceit of the book (which I won’t spoil by going into) is very, very smart. Highly recommended.
