About J. Daniel Sawyer

J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive autodidact attempting to write his way out of the loony bin.
A self-aggrandizing science fiction and fantasy author who publishes lurid stories and, worse, the occasional popular philosophy article, he is also a very minor authority on Open Source media production (a topic on which he is, unfortunately, published regularly in LinuxJournal).
In addition to his wanton abuse of the printed word, he unscrupulously uses his decade-long experience as an audio and video producer with his painfully florid and gritty writing style to create deeply immersive audio universes. This habit, which he indulges in public, has garnered him seven Parsec nominations and helped him make his first professional fiction and philosophy sales (a trend which, for the good of the world at large, we can only hope abates soon). Meanwhile, his growing, rabid fan-base is currently plotting to imprison him and force him to produce endless new literary abominations for their amusement. We can only hope they succeed.
Should you be so inclined, you can communicate with this shady character, as well as find podcasts, articles, and other literary abominations at

Review by: Scott Roche on Sep. 14, 2011 :
I don't give stories five stars very often, but when I do it's for a well told story that you will read more than once. This is one such story. Dan breaks a few of the "rules" that I hear on a somewhat regular basis:

"Don't write in dialect."
"Don't write in first person."
"Don't get involved in a land war in As.."

Okay maybe not that last one. Suffice to say this is a touching, haunting, beautiful story and is underpriced at $.99 in terms of how much pleasure I will get out of it.
