Daniel Suarez        

Daniel Suarez concocts thrilling reads from terrifying (and not-so-farfetched) near-future scenarios.

While working as a software developer, Daniel Suarez self-published "Daemon," a cyber-thriller depicting a future where society is radically reshaped by disruptive technologies.

It struck a chord -- and so did the sequel, "Freedom" -- rocketing Suarez into the pantheon of sci-fi prophets.

In his 2012 novel "Kill Decision," Suarez digs into the consequences of technology that's here to stay: autonomous bots and drones programmed to be lethal.

Suarez argues that as we cede more control to software, we gamble with the very essence of democracy itself. How can we establish sane guidelines for technology that could easily outstrip our control?
