(1982- ) German-born author, in UK from childhood, resident for at least a decade before 2016 in Japan. His first book, The Cat and the City (coll of linked stories 2020), Equipoisally links a series of tales around its sometimes Near Future Tokyo setting and the revelation that each tale depicts events in the City that have been tattooed over the entire body of a young woman, at her request. She may be a Shapeshifter who in some sense inhabits the stories told on her skin, perhaps through the tattoo calico cat which appears in each tale. Among these, "Copy Cat" is set in the Near Future of a Tokyo ransacked by years of preparing for the 2020 Olympics. [JC]
