Big Daddy Novelist

Drew Magary moves from sports blogging to sci-fi.

Ryan Walker

Drew Magary, mostly known as Big Daddy Drew, purveyor of dick jokes and sports snark at Deadspin and Kissing Suzy Kolber, may not be a successor to George Orwell or Aldous Huxley. But his new science fiction novel The Postmortal examines a dystopian future—one brought about when an accidental cure for aging becomes widely available to the public. Magary takes care to detail the various social and political changes wrought by the cure, alongside some nightmarish violence. Yet, the science never overwhelms the Mad Max fictional elements and visa versa.
