Bannister, Andrew

Tagged: Author

(1965-    ) UK author whose Spin trilogy beginning with Creation Machine (2016) is primarily set, at least initially, in the eponymous Macrostructure, a constructed ensemble of something like ninety planets revolving around twenty-one suns (see Stars), a vast complex assembled (and in a sense manufactured) by what may be a Forerunner civilization. The family-romance plot of the first instalment – dictatorial father plus rebellious daughter who flees through space to escape him and to inflict retribution – expands in later volumes to take more advantage of the overall venue.
