(1940- ) US author in whose first sf novel, Under the City of Angels (1981), a sunken California is delved by the haunted protagonist, who finds powerful corporations and Aliens at the root of things. In Darkhold (1985), a man engages in a Godgame enterprise to Clone five lovers for himself in a kind of Pocket Universe environment, paying a complex price for his hubris. The horror-inflected Earthfall (1990) unremarkably shows an Earth overrun by Mutants hungry for flesh. [JC]
