Exclusive Interview: “After Death” Author Dean Koontz


Some scientists believe that, at some point in the future, humans will be able to use technology to become immortal. It’s an event often referred to as The Singularity. But while some consider The Singularity to be a positive step in human evolution, and others think it will lead to a dystopia, in his new novel After Death (hardcover, Kindle, audiobook), writer Dean Koontz presents a version that’s neither entirely good nor entirely bad. In the following email interview, Koontz explains what inspired this thriller, and why it’s neither a cautionary tale nor a hope for the future.
