I was up until 4am finishing Coalescence a novel by Gary Starta. I’ve mentioned before he is one of my favorite authors and he continues to blow my mind away. His prodigious writing skills continues to impress me as I’m sure it does all his fans. How can one express the intensity of his imagination without revealing the contents of this incredible novel. From the beginning of Coalescence it mesmerized me and everything that exist around me fades to the background. The characters are so believable and before you know it they become a part of your world. The ability to empathize with each character is a quality of an amazing author. Mr. Starta, thank you for giving me the joy of experiencing your gift to entertain and escape from my world into yours. Terri Klein.

Gary Starta is a former journalist who studied English and Journalism at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
His love for science fiction compelled him to write his first novel What Are You Made Of? published in 2006. Inspired by Isaac Asimov, the science fiction novel focuses on intelligent artificial life and whether sentient androids should possess the same rights as humans. The androids in Starta’s novel are created as hybrids – part machine, part human – further blurring the line between human and machine. Starta foresees a near future where humans will be forced to decide if intelligent machinery is indeed a life form. Possibly, in this near future, some humans will possess computer enhancements to overcome disabilities becoming hybrids themselves. The line between biological life form and mechanical life form continues to be examined in 2010’s Gods of the Machines.
