Adam Bender

Adam Bender is an award-winning journalist and author of speculative fiction that explores modern-day societal fears with a mix of action and romance.

 

Adam is the author of dystopian sci-fi novels about government surveillance: We, The Watched and Divided We Fall; and The Wanderer and the New West, a dystopian western about lawlessness in near-future America. His latest novel is Utopia PR, a sci-fi satire about a public-relations specialist who struggles to find work-life balance while managing crisis after crisis for a dystopian American president. Adam adapted his first novel into a screenplay and has written several short stories.

 

In his day job as a journalist, Adam has covered politics and technology for Communications Daily and Computerworld Australia. He has won multiple investigative reporting awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and the Specialized Information Publishers Association for his telecom and internet news coverage.

 

Despite how this all might appear, Adam is generally a rather modest and amiable fellow. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife Mallika, and he'd be happy to have a craft beer with you at the next Phillies game.
