About Lincoln Cole

Hi, I'm Lincoln! I'm an author of horror and science fiction books and I love to tell ridiculous and wild stories. I've written over twenty books throughout my life under three different pen names. The first book I published was when I was fourteen years old. The only thing I remember about it is that it was a lot of fun, but the final result was terrible. I had no idea what I was doing, no guidance, and it was far from a finished project.

Since then, I've written five horror novels, several space operas and techno thrillers, and even a couple of literary books about social issues in America. The genres I write are all over the place, but in general I stick with horror, science fiction, and thrillers (and best case scenario is when I can do all three at once!).

My newest book-in-progress fits firmly in the techno thriller genre, and it's one I have been working on for several years. It's adapted to changes in my writing style and the kinds of stories I want to tell, and whenever I think about it I get excited. I love the technology of the Crispr/Cas9 system and the implications for our future as humans. It represents a leap forward unlike anything we've seen before, and the possibilities are endless.

However, wrapped inside that are social issues and philosophical issues about what it is to be human. We are already using this new system around the world to engineer new traits into animals and considering its applications in fighting off genetic diseases...how long will it be until we are using it to engineer our own humanity?

Upcoming Project

CRISPR is going to be my next big book launch, and I'm going to run a Kickstarter campaign for it in early January. That will be the only way to get advance copies of this book three months early (Release date is Q3 of 2018).

Keep your eyes peeled for updates about this project and how you can support it!!

Rave Reviews

What I loved most was Cole’s gift for foreshadowing. He only reveals what you need to know at the time, thus allowing the reader to gasp a loud at certain plot twists.

If this first book in the World of Shadows series is any indication of what’s to come, I can’t wait for the next terrifying addition.

I loved Ripples Through Time. Loved. It. How’s that for a review? I highly recommend Ripples Through Time, and am looking forward to reading more from the very promising author, Lincoln Cole, as soon as possible!
