Look and Listen


Paco Ahlgren was born in El Paso, Texas on November 19, 1968. He spent the earliest part of his adulthood as a professional musician, touring and recording, while simultaneously studying music theory, English, and philosophy. Ultimately, he earned a degree in finance, and has worked as an economist and a financial analyst for the last seventeen years.

He never abandoned his philosophical roots, however, and has spent the last two decades devouring subjects ranging from eastern epistemology and metaphysics, to quantum mechanics, to psychology. He is especially interested in the impact technology has had on the areas he understands so intimately.

Paco has traveled the world, examining the connections between modern scientific theories and ancient traditions and cultures. His first novel, Discipline, is a confluence of these passions. He splits his time between his homes in Austin, Texas and Durango, Colorado.

You've been fascinated by these ideas for as long as you can remember. Discipline brings them home in a way that will shock you, inspire you, terrify you, and leave you questioning your very perception of reality...

"Who do you think is creating this terror?" he hissed. "Why do you think the dollar is failing?" He narrowed his eyes. "They're using technologies that haven't even been invented yet. They know where you are every second, and if you don't listen to what I tell you, we're all going to die. Do you understand?"

I stared at him, unable to speak. Finally I just nodded slowly...
