Morgan, Chris

Tagged: Author | Editor | Critic

(1946-    ) UK editor, critic and author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Clown Fish and Anemone" for Science Fiction Monthly in 1975. His fiction is generally unexceptional, though some stories – such as "Losing Control" (in Other Edens III, anth 1989, ed Christopher Evans and Robert Holdstock), about the crew of a crashed Starship who survive by means of incestuous marriage and a strange form of symbiosis with an Alien species – involve interesting and innovative ideas. Morgan's main contribution has been as a critic, notably in The Shape of Futures Past: The Story of Prediction (1980), a comprehensive and valuable survey of pre-1945 Predictions about the future. Future Man (1980) is a history of sf speculations on possible biological and behavioural changes in humanity. [NT]
