TL;DR: I’m a science fiction author and researcher from Sri Lanka. On good days I spend my days filling notebooks full of strange ideas. On bad days I think of exploding cats.
WORKS IN PROGRESS [as of September 2017]
- Dreadnought – a short story in Craig Martelle’s Expanding Universe III anthology. Explores a starship AI trying to understand war and death through Tennyson’s Charge of the Light Brigade.
- The Blue Mountain [tentative title] – a mute girl from a post-apocalyptic Colombo decides to find out what lies beyond the mountain of garbage looming in the background. Explores Lord of the Flies -ish societies and a Sri Lanka ruined beyond all recognition.
“Fantastic, detailed world-building and characters with heart bring this story to life. Wijeratne has held up a chillingly realistic mirror on our interconnected society.” – Paul Anlee, author of The Reality Thief
“I cannot even begin to tell you how awesome this is. I can happily say it is the best book I’ve read this year.” – Navin Weeraratne, author of The Hundred Gram Mission
“Prophetic, Orwellian, and not wholly inconceivable: the depth of Numbercaste lies in how readily we are able to envision this not-so-distant future.” – Amanda Jay, author of The Other One
