Thomas van Aalten (September 26, 1978, Huissen) is a Dutch writer. He made his debut with a story in the literary magazine Zoetermeer, at the age of 19. Van Aalten has written the novels Sneeuwbeeld (2000), Tupelo (2001), Sluit Deuren en Ramen (2003) and Coyote (2006) and several articles for magazines such as 3VOOR12, Passionate, VARA TV Magazine, Revu and Vrij Nederland. Van Aalten's style is characterized by absurd dialogues, creepy atmospheres and strange characters. He is a F.C. St. Pauli enthusiast and fan of rock music like Motörhead, The Sisters of Mercy. Van Aalten, now aged 28, works also often together with Berlin based burlesque filmmaker Edwin Brienen.
His 'fifth novel' was a stunt; Exile appeared only on a mobile phone after sending an SMS text message. The story contained comments on the abuse of new technologies.
