I’m an author, researcher and programmer from Colombo, Sri Lanka.

You can find my work on Goodreads, Icaruswept, Readme, Medium. and quite a few other places besides – including the Sunday Times, the Island, the Sunday Leader, the Nation and Colombo Telegraph.


If you’d like to read some of my work, try The Slow Sad Suicide of Rohan Wijeratne (no relation). It’s about a man who signs up to be shot into a Kerr singularity – that’s a black hole whose rotation flattens it out into a ring.

It’s got some rave reviews on Goodreads, hit the #1 spots on Amazon’s scifi and lit-fic bestseller lists, and you can now download it from Amazon for free.

Progress update:

  1. Numbercaste, which will be avialble on the 28th of July, is a novel in the vein of 1984 and Black Mirror. It chronicles a Silicon Valley company as it tries to get the whole world hooked on a utopian vision – an ideal state where everyone’s worth to society is analyzed, quantified, and crunched down to a single number.
  2. Blue Mountain, set in a post-apocalyptic Colombo, is being written over the weekends. It’s turning into a very Lord of the Flies-esque story about a deaf-mute girl exploring the world that lies beyond a huge mountain of trash.
