(1969- ) UK author whose Near Future Outpost Universe sequence beginning with Outpost (2011) follows the actions of a mixed group of survivors of a worldwide Pandemic, a Zombie Apocalypse plague which transforms its victims into rampaging metallic Monsters. The cast, which has survived this Disaster in an Arctic enclave, decides to travel south to see if there is anything left of the world; the death of several Red Shirts provides an answer. There is a great deal of action; Paranoia about the artificial source of the plague is fully justified; the sequence seems set to continue. [JC]
