“This is the first running book I've read that I think, wow this is like peeking into my brain and my way of thinking.

I will be reading it again and again.”

“Lace up for a powerful story of commitment, loss, aspiration and an unlikely challenger of systematic oppression.”


3x US Olympic Coach - Triathlon

“The Slummer's inspiring story pits the indomitable spirit of a runner against economic disparity and genetic engineering in a believable, dystopian tomorrow.”


“I couldn't help but lace up my shoes and go for a run.”


Geoffrey Simpson - author of The Slummer - a running novel

Dear Reader,

As an author and former competitive runner, The Slummer comes from deep within. A runner’s passion matched with an author’s craft. I feel that it is my calling to give back to the community which has provided for me throughout my lifetime… to give back in the form of fiction. 

Join the thousands of other readers and runners who have found a piece of themselves within these pages… Inspired… Motivated.   

Forever Running,

The Slummer - Book description - back cover
