Cash, Steve

Tagged: Author

(1946-    ) US rock musician – he was lead singer for the Ozark Mountain Daredevils from its founding in 1971 – and author of The Meq sequence of sf novels, beginning with The Meq (dated 2003 but 2002), which describe, in fantasy-tinged diction, the lives of a kind of Pariah Elite which has hidden itself since time immemorial in the Basque lands of northern Spain. Meqs remain pre-adolescent until (at sight) they recognize their soul mate, enjoying to that point a kind of pre-pubescent Immortality. The sequence begins in the late nineteenth century, traversing much of the northern hemisphere, as the pre-adolescent protagonists secretly infiltrate significant moments of history, and become, deeply though intermittently, involved in the darker structures of Baseball.
