He grew up playing video games and watching action movies, but his main hobby as a child was to imagine fantastical stories involving ninjas, dinosaurs and cyborgs. An avid reader of classic cyberpunk sci fi and pulp fiction, he tried to bring these two passions together in the Cybersampa series. The initial novella, Immaculate Conception, is his first book written in English.
Solari is the author of The Cascavel Chronicles, a prequel to Cybersampa and a love letter to old action movies. The book, released in Brazil in 2015, follows the owner of a run-down video shop that decides to fight crime. His only “superpower”? He watched every single 80’s action movie ever made.
He is also the cowriter of the play Fogo, which was presented in Sao Paulo in 2010. His short story Egofobia has appeared in the Portuguese edition of The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases, alongside the works of authors like Neil Gaiman, China Miéville and Alan Moore.
