Wesley Chu’s best friend is Michael Jordan, assuming that best friend status is earned by a shared television commercial. If not, then his best friend is his dog, Eva, who he can often be seen riding like a trusty steed through the windy streets of Chicago.

In 2014, Wesley Chu was shortlisted for the John W Campbell Best New Writer Award, which he won in 2015. His debut, The Lives of Tao, earned him a Young Adult Library Services Association Alex Award and a Science Fiction Goodreads Choice Award Finalist slot. The sequel, The Deaths of Tao, continues the story of secret agent Roen Tan and his sarcastic telepathically bonded alien, Tao. The final in the series, The Rebirths of Tao…well you’ll have to read it to find out. The Rise of Io, the start of a new series set in the Tao universe was released in October 2016.

In 2015 Chu released Time Salvager, wherein time travelling chronman James brings one fated to die back to the future with him. Time Salvager is published by Tor (USA/R.o.W) and Angry Robot (UK). The sequel, Time Siege, was published in July 2016.
