I am the author of the science fiction novel End Time: Notes on the Apocalypse, available from AK Press (PO Box 40682, San Francisco, CA 94140-0682).
I also write a monthly (more or less) political column, entitled “What’s Left?,” under the nom de guerre “Lefty” Hooligan for Maximum Rocknroll (PO Box 460760, San Francisco, CA 94146-0760).
Below are links to my websites, blogs, facebook pages, instagram, and twitter for my personal, political, writer/author, promotional, and publishing posts.
This book is so many things, a detective story, a future history, science fiction, and a commentary on politics, and relationships. Refreshing and rare to see an author so thoroughly take apart his side of the political fence. highly recommend this book.
Yup, this is the greatest piece of anarchist agit-prop since…well, since forever. There is nothing better.
“The plot is straight forward thriller-cum-cyberpunk … (I)t’s fast-paced and fun in the way only a fervent anarchist rant can be.” —Q zine “End Time presents as an apocalyptic future-fiction, but […]
“Solidly-crafted thriller… Provocative political discussion and ‘what if’s’ raise the book’s intellectual value without spoiling it as a good read.” —TapRoot Reviews “End Time: Notes On The Apocalypse is a very […]
“While dealing with future events that may not be, enough of the action takes place in a believable world to call this a 90’s version of M. Gilliland’s classic The Free . Over-all, well-written, near future science fiction novel brimming with believable characters in an all-too-familiar setting. Pick this one up and you probably won’t be able to put it down “til it’s over!”
“Ackerman showed up, and Bennett – and some guy named G.A. Matiasz whose SF/Oakland-based early 21st-century thriller called End Time I’m currently in the middle of and finding not only highly professional but intelligent, a rare combination in fiction. It’s fun reading, too!”
“This is, at the very least, the novel of the year. The characters really take you along with them. So realistic, it ought to give all sorts of saboteurs inspiration on possibilities for what can be done.”
“End Time … is scarily realistic, fast paced, and detailed in vision. … I don’t know of any future fiction this chillingly real published since the debut of Gibson’s Neuromancer …. If Gibson preceded Matiasz, it must be admitted that Matiasz has topped him.”
