Books by PJ Pancras


PJ Pancras also known as Firma Tacker & Tape is an Amsterdam based writers duo. Pamela is a clinical psychologist specialized in the treatment of PTSD. Jeroen is an IT specialist at an academic medical center. As a couple they are fascinated by the dialogue between the masculine and feminine perspectives that their writing partnership provides.

In 2016 their debut novel Planet Paradroid, exploring notions of conscious artificial intelligence and empathy, reached the number one position of ‘the SF most wanted list’ of Dutch readers community Hebban. The book was translated into English in 2017.

Their style is at turns whimsical and astute, weaving the everyday with the tragic and the sublime in near gonzo style, extrapolating to a future that is both patently weird and arrestingly believable.

In March 2018 PJ Pancras published a short story about mind traveling called Karma Hack in online magazine 2.3.74. The magazine is produced by Lebowski Publishers and will appear twice a year to present Dutch and Flemish authors writing Grounded SF.

The sequel to Planet Paradroid called IMOJIMAN, was published in Dutch March 2019.
