Author of 'University of Death', a techno-thriller that satires the music industry

Background Information

Sean McManus has published his third book with the novel ‘University of Death’, which satirises the music industry and reviews its potential meltdown. The book is named after the band at the centre of the action. It takes a slice through the music industry: from the boardroom to the stage; from the studio to the record fair. It explores how fans relate to their favourite bands, how businesses use technology to manipulate consumers, and what would happen if the music industry disappeared overnight. Free chapters can be found at

Sean has been a professional writer for over ten years. At the height of the dotcom boom, he created the ‘com together’ column for Making Music, about promoting independent bands online. His work has also appeared in Melody Maker, Future Music, Internet Magazine and Business 2.0 among others. His non-fiction books have been published by Prentice Hall and Management Pocketbooks. Sean is a keen retrogamer, and has written for Commodore Format and Amstrad Computer User.

Sean has seen a new band on average every seven weeks over the last 18 years, and is enough of a music geek to have worked that out. As a music journalist, he interviewed Radiohead on the day The Bends was released, and also grilled chart-busting aliens Zig + Zag. His favourite authors include Douglas Adams and Ben Elton.
