If you are reaching out regarding the Metaverse or Web3, please contact the team at LAMINA1. This means interview requests, partnership inquiries, collaborations, speeches or anything in between. Please do NOT contact my agents, managers or publishers directly as they will not respond to your inquiry.



My literary agent is


Liz Darhansoff 
Darhansoff & Verrill 
275 Fair Street
Suite 17D
Kingston, NY 12401



Note that Darhansoff & Verrill also handles speaking requests. I almost never accept these. When I do, I charge a lot of money, I demand expensive travel arrangements, and I perform no prep work--I just show up and wing it. Sometimes I make special exceptions to those rules, but when I do, I always end up regretting it. See "Why I Am a Bad Correspondent" and "Why I Am a Sociomediapath" for background.


And my Hollywood agent is 


Richard Green
Gotham Group
1041 N Formosa Avenue, Formosa West Building, Suite 200,
West Hollywood, CA 90046


My publicist for media requests is

Eliza Rosenberry
HarperCollins Publishers
195 Broadway
New York, NY 10007



Do not under any circumstances try to send me physical objects (letters, bookplates, books--anything whatsoever made of atoms) in the mail. It is unlikely that you are sending them to the right address--the Internet is often wrong--and if they do reach me I will throw them away. See "Why I Am a Bad Correspondent" and "Why I Am a Sociomediapath" for background.
