Davis, Russell

Tagged: Author | Editor

(1970-    ) US author, editor and publisher in many genres whose pseudonyms include David Cian and Christopher Tracy; he has edited a number of anthologies, most in collaboration with Martin H Greenberg. In his sf novel Touchless (2002) the protagonist, whose dead wife is in Cryonic storage, is offered the choice (reminiscent of an episode in A.I.: Artificial Intelligence [2001]) between having her restored for one day as a Virtual Reality Avatar, with no hope of further revival, or allowing her a chance of full physical healing in some perhaps distant future. Megawar (2005) as by David Cian centres on a 2038 invasion from Mars, with Earth defended by giant human-piloted Mecha. Davis was president of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America from 2008-2010. [DRL]
