Barker, Dennis

Entry updated 11 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1929-2015) UK journalist and author, active in the former capacity from the mid-1940s, much of his career being with the Guardian. Of his novels, Winston Three Three Three (1987) is of interest, being set in a distant Near Future Britain, part of a Communist Europe-spanning Russian empire half a century or so hence. The tale focuses on the eponymous Winston's search for the original Winston One through a colonized land that does not, in fact, closely resemble the Dystopia inhabited by sf's most famous Winston, the doomed protagonist of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).
