Welcome to my worlds!

On my mind

My mission statement as a writer is to combine the intimately human with the grandly cosmic. I consider science fiction to be the literature of asking fundamental questions about who we are, where we came from, and where we are going, both as individuals and as a species.

Why I'm excited to talk with readers

I love chatting with my readers, but also with beginning writers. Ask me anything! I'm always up for an interesting conversation.

Also!

I'm Canadian! I love puns and wordplay, I love big ideas, and I love getting to know people.

Live long and prosper!

Rob

Where I've written

The Oppenheimer Alternative

"Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds," physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer famously exclaimed when the first atomic bomb exploded in 1945. His Manhattan Project gathered the greatest scientists ever assembled, including Richard Feynman, Edward Teller, Leo Szilard, and Enrico Fermi.

In this meticulously researched novel, Oppenheimer keeps those geniuses together after the war — joined by Albert Einstein, computing pioneer John von Neumann, and rocket designer Wernher von Braun — in hopes of saving our planet from an environmental catastrophe. If they succeed, they will be able to declare, "Now we are become life, the saviors of the world."

"An imaginative restructuring of a phantasmagoric life into an alternative phantasmagorical story. Oppenheimer fans will be intrigued."

Martin J. Sherwin, co-author of the biography American Prometheus, the basis for Christopher Nolan's movie Oppenheimer

Quantum Night

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from twenty years previously — a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible — change human nature — before the entire world descends into darkness.

"What a great, provocative read! From quantum physics to the philosophy of mind, Sawyer's latest novel will leave you pondering deep questions long after you turn the final page."

Dan Falk, author of The Science of Shakespeare
