Dead Weight

“A Tense journey. A gritty, cinematic post-apocalyptic thriller… will broadly appeal to fans of breathless end-of-the-world action sequences.” — Publishers Weekly

“Casamassina’s novel avoids getting bogged down by a standard, predictable plot arc. Solid apocalyptic fiction that focuses more on its character relationships than its sci-fi element” — Kirkus Reviews

When 17-year-old Zephyr Rockwell wakes from a camping trip in the woods, he discovers that nearly everyone in the world has disappeared and most of the luxuries mankind maintained are already breaking down.

What happened? Where did everybody go? Why is he still here?

The boy soon embarks on a journey for answers and companionship in a new reality where great cities lay in ruins, food and water grow scarcer by the day, and every other survivor is a potential threat.

There are secrets waiting in California. Still, is the trek halfway across the country worth the risk? Zephyr and his new friends decide to find out. Some of them may not return.

“Ambitious. Well-paced. Riveting. [Casamassina] occasionally reaches moments of lyricism.” ― Kirkus Reviews

“Gritty. Addictive… if you like powerful sci-fi thrillers, this is an absolute must-read.” — Online Book Club

Step into a near-future America overrun by competing tech giants and widespread social decay in this raunchy, violent, hilarious and disturbing science-fiction thriller.

You have 30 days until we take over, a cloaked figure warns the House of Representatives and then vanishes into a bolt of electricity. The same morning, Miyuki Mitsuraga, a struggling video game journalist, is inexplicably invited to interview the dark terrorist as the media spins into a frenzy and internet schadenfreude runs wild.

SOPHISTICATION follows her and four others, including a drug-addicted special agent, a seasoned senator, a quadriplegic, and a well-financed serial killer as their lives converge amid displays of technology and power well in advance of anything the world has ever seen.

Mason Kowalsky, a twenty-four year-old copywriter for a San Mateo startup, is on the verge of a nervous breakdown when he inexplicably suffers widespread vision loss in one eye. The doctors say it’s macular degeneration triggered by excessive stress, but he begins to wonder if it’s something more, especially when the shadows in his periphery begin to take shape and whisper wonderful and horrible things to him.  Is it madness or destiny? He isn’t sure he wants to find out.
