As Michael W Lucas I write tech books. As Michael Warren Lucas I write SF, thrillers, mysteries, romantic suspense, and a bunch of other stuff. To find out when I release a book, sign up for my topic-specific mailing list.

Once you walk into the twisted imagination of Michael Lucas, you really won’t want to leave… – Kristine Kathryn Rusch, multiple Hugo award winning author of The Retrieval Artist

What goes on this site? All my books. Suggestions on which books you might like, depending on what you read. Updates on books underway. New projects. April Fool’s pranks. Links to reviews. My travel policy. Answers to questions I’ve been asked too many times. Where you can get T-shirts and other stuff with book cover art on them. My mailing lists–oops, I already mentioned that. Still, disintermediation is precious.
