Techno-thriller and horror author Lincoln Child has become highly regarded for his fast-paced and well researched stories. He also tends to write with the author Douglas Preston and, not only that, a motion-picture of one of his novels, ‘Relic’, has been made.

Early and Personal Life

Born in 1957 in the coastal town of Westport Connecticut USA, Lincoln Child has become a well established author of horror and techno-thrillers. Now living in Morristown, New Jersey he gained a major in English after graduating from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. To begin with he was an editorial assistant for Saint Martin’s Press, a position which he gained in 1979. By 1984 he was promoted to being a full-time editor. This was to be the basis of much of his experience as he edited large quantities of fiction novels during his time here.

During his time at St. Martin’s Press he founded their horror division for a mass-market audience. Shortly afterwards in 1987 he left though to become a systems analyst for ‘MetLife’, a life insurance company. It was in 1995 he completed his first book ‘Relic’, after which he left the company to pursue his own writing career. Having teamed up with Douglas Preston they formed a working relationship which helped build much of his career as they created a substantial amount of work together. It was in 2003 that he finished and published his first solo novel ‘Utopia’. Then in 2011 he made it to the top of the The New York Times best-seller list.

Writing Career

Having penned over seventeen novels to date, Lincoln Child holds for himself an impressive resume. Working with Douglas Preston for much of it, they’re both well renowned for their in-depth and thorough research. Their first book together, ‘Relic’, was published in 1995 by Tor Books and received much praise and critical acclaim. In 1997 they had the Hollywood adaptation come out to mixed reviews, yet it still managed to reach number one in the box office at the time. This was the year they also released a sequel novel titled ‘Reliquary’ which reached the top of The New York Times best-seller list.

These books were soon to make up the beginning of ‘The Pendergast’ series of novels featuring special-agent Aloysius Pendergast as their lead protagonist. Also featured were other members of the Pendergast family over the course of the books. Amongst this series were two trilogies; ‘The Diogenes Trilogy’ and ‘The Helen Trilogy’.

They’ve followed this up with ‘The Gideon Crew’ series along with their various other novels. A series titled ‘Wyman Ford’ has also been proposed, which they recently begun with the release of ‘The Kraken Project’. Lincoln Child has penned five solo projects and will continue to write into the foreseeable future. Being a New York Times best-selling author, he’s implemented his works across platforms as his working relationship with Preston continues to this day. They interact with their many fans both online and off, building feedback to help inform and inspire their work both now and into the future.


Set inside a fictionalized version of the American Museum of Natural History that’s currently found in New York City, this marked the first book where Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston worked together, as well as initiating the Pendergast series. When there’s a number of violent murders taking place in the run up to the opening of a large new exhibition titled ‘Superstition’, it’s up to a select few to solve the case and find out who is causing them. Soon all the evidence lines up pointing to an expedition that took place previously involving the museum, as a group headed into the rainforests of Brazil looking for the lost Kothoga tribe. With all the evidence they find that it is Mbwun, an insane lizard god of the Kothoga people, who is committing all the murders due to a relic depicting his image being part of the upcoming exhibition.

With the knowledge that various museum officials knew who was behind these murders, but kept it all hidden to avoid further upset, it is up to the protagonists to prevent it from happening again and bring those responsible to justice. Featured in this novel is Special Agent Aloysius X. L. Pendergast for the first time in what is to be a recurring role in the book’s subsequent sequels. With the help of other such characters as NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D’Agosta and Margo Green, a student graduate working at the museum, they must all come together to finish the case and defeat the monster within. Can they manage it though and help make the museum a safe place once again? Will they be able to bring justice to those who need it most?


Marking the first solo novel of Lincoln Child, this particular story tells of an amusement park set in the future called ‘Utopia’. Relying primarily on robotics and holographic projections, it sees the program designer of the robots populating the park, Dr. Andrew Warne, as he’s called into help manage an issue. On arriving he finds that John Doe, a mysterious man with not much information on him, is keeping the park held hostage. Within the park itself there are five various ‘worlds’ all set around distinctive themes. As a ransom is placed on the park by a group of criminals, it is up to Warne to thwart their efforts. He must do so as it soon transpires that his daughter is amongst those held hostage in the park. None of the guests have any knowledge that this is going on and Warne hopes to keep it that way as he looks to prevent the criminal’s nefarious plan.

Navigating the futuristic world of his own creation, he must contend with the horrors that lie in-store for him throughout. With plenty of scares along the way, he must outsmart the enemy and save the day, all whilst going undetected by the regular park guests. Can he defeat the evil villain and manage to save everyone? Will he get his daughter back and go back home in one piece? This original first time effort from Lincoln Child shows a departure from his usual fare as he attempts to stand on his own and make a name for himself.

    I would like to find a writer to describe all of Australia being basically sex terrorists to extreme eg my own far too beautiful sister Jill and my own child Alma…. Although you may not write reality stories I was interested in Douglas Preston and your interest in the Monster of Florence as Mario Spezi. . These have been extremists locals in Gippsland Australia as too insane to ever hear of concerning all sane human victims eg Koorie family members (Aboriginals) and my own house and daughter after divorce. .. Yet the police have not once ever locked them up or used information in investigations as obviously insane and only imprisonable. ..I myself as an American would love to leave… Outta here Australia to describe these hideous persons as mass attacks.. .I wish to request a professional writer to collaborate with me as myself started writing literary poetry and later other genres of writing from a young age… Americans would never hear of any descriptions of Australia as very aggressive perpetrators and predators as human victims and always me the same attackers…. These include dangerously insane mass attackers as psychosis rioting as possessing including their own famille members. . They have nothing humanly known as chronologically methodical racial human attackers. These are hostile networks eg narcotics/ alcoholism networks as the lowest of deviations… They have actively made threats… I know the truth about them as their victims as why… They have no defence rights…. Innocence is a word too . .But Australia law enforcement don’t even use information for investigations as apprehending rights. . In other words they are blatantly illegal require disciplinary action and leave total insanity free yet victims don’t even matter… This is my confidentiality information which I keep requesting be used for an impartial independent inquiry using all my firsthand information for imprisonable status. ..I’d love to leave Australia to establish the lowest implications as interactively hideous networks… I’m sure a crime writer would appreciate my position as mass attackers eg then an ICE epidemic networks… From childhood eg my beautiful America as Topanga Canyon California as always with friends walked around barefoot up and down hills and mountains and my grandparents immaculate Spanish style home in Los Angeles California…. I have so many grisly stories to devise as real life histories as my wish as compensatory to write books from life with a professional writer to compile and collaborate … As also my Mother Dear was a real major psychopath eg proven child family killer as in itself would be a complex study of a psychopath to document as a book… As I’ve said the average American would never ever hear descriptions of any Australia …. Monetarily these were totally devious diabolical games to cause poverty or disorientation and displacement as also sadism.. .My own natural healthy good looks were never to blame as how often fantasy land delusionary deviates possessors as totally illegal persons as active attacks and always deviates networks eg all mateship… Good men are rare… Marriage is only real…. My own British famille origins were a rare historical Welsh Nana as totally beautiful and a loving marital union as a wisely wealthy Scottish clan Mitchell grandfather and they and my father a clean living gentleman were never to blame as also my legality regarding my siblings and rights to relationship to natural famille members USA plus my own protection laws of my daughter and I from her birth… Yet from beginning to end Australians are only and always implicated as was Mother Dear too insane to ever hear of as were all imprisonables eg rape is an act of crime against humanity…. There are never my British American standards in Australia as basically only active attacking as a supposed nationality and just Brit dumping ground for huge numbers of defectives if not unrecognisable as aggressively reacting and sorry deviates. . As my origins who could look at filthy ugly gutter convicts… Get me outta here.. .There are a number of books to write as real life histories much less to keep denying any contact ever… Beauty isn’t meant to be holocaustic fantasy land family sex thrill killers.. .The turbulence has been insane… Don’t even know I’m real. . Only now is my housing privacy and safe yet I paid the cost of these hostile species to all sane humans… All victims have been sane racials including very high standards professionally.. .this would require a certain humane intelligence to even interpret any of their languages… I cannot receive treatment in Australia to quote their implications eg unethical practices and sexual misconduct eg corruption and incestuousness in the arts including real rapists as imprisonable and disciplinary action as the police how often.. .privacy is a human right … Genocidals treason and terrorisations are real evidence against… What Australia call a national identity … They can’t even control themselves to extreme .. . No my face isn’t to blame as literally stated genocidal vice mass rapists regardless of age gender race eg mass race serial rape recidivists …. Australia isn’t nice civilised polite people eg quote them all the time… Also the Brits have had no right to make an Aboriginal land mass a huge island in the southern hemisphere a dumping ground for hideous breeds of people or where did they come from in England or all other insane racials… My legality is always real… Could hardly hear any expressions or any descriptions… Yes Australians have only been enemies of America and all other offensive racial targeting as never justifiably attacking as my wish to make known all innocent sane victims and my siblings my daughter and to say to identify their legal rights based on all my firsthand information encounters and knowledge… Force is never a right despite not being able to reason with them as totally insane reactions and breeds of people . .. I’m sure a professional writer would find this challenging.. . Dignity is also a human right…. As real human rights violations Australia is owing a huge individual and collective representation as compensation claims factually. .. But corrupt greedy solicitors were proven too and implicated police to quote as not correct legal process or judiciary.. . My real view is to refer all information to The International Court of Justice -The Hague as real acts of war as a consistently extreme hostile population as stated Chronogically as all accountability as I’ve said obviously imprisonable etc…. Thank you. . Best regards, Leslie Anthony-Robinson in Gippsland Australia.. .please contact Leslie +61(0)481138092
