“Kerry takes me somewhere I hadn't previously imagined and lets me live there for a while. His characters are well drawn, his situations thought-provoking, and he writes so smoothly that I can forget I'm actually sitting safe in my chair...”
Kathy Tyers, New York Times bestselling author
Kerry Nietz is an award-winning science fiction author. He has eleven speculative novels in print, along with a novella, a couple short stories, and a non-fiction book, FoxTales.
Kerry’s novel A Star Curiously Singing won the Readers Favorite Gold Medal Award for Christian Science Fiction and is notable for its dystopian, cyberpunk vibe in a world under sharia law. It is often mentioned on “Best of” lists.
Among his writings, Kerry's most talked about is the genre-bending Amish Vampires in Space. AViS was mentioned on the Tonight Show and in the Washington Post, Library Journal, and Publishers Weekly. Newsweek called it “a welcome departure from the typical Amish fare.”
Kerry is a refugee of the software industry. He spent more than a decade of his life flipping bits, first as one of the principal developers for the now mythical Fox Software, and then as one of Bill Gates's minions at Microsoft. He is a husband, a father, a technophile and a movie buff.

Best Modern Christian Sci-fi...
February 15, 2022
The folks at Shepherd.com found my book "A Star Curiously Singing" and contacted me about making a recommendation list for them.
Shepherd is an up-and-coming list-based book browsing site. A little like wandering through your local bookstore...but online. (It's run by bookshop.org. A bookselling site with a local bookstore focus.)
My task was to come up with unique list and five books to populate it. Tough chore, because I have lots of favorites. The books also have to have some tie to mine--enough that they could share a list together. That made it a little easier.
Anyway, here's my list. All are books that I've read and enjoyed. Check it out.
T-shirts and stuff...
