(1960-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "The War Inside" for Pulphouse: The Hardback Magazine in June 1991, and who published further short fiction in the 1990s; his ongoing Clade sequence – comprising Clade (2003), Crache (2005) and Idolon (2006), with further volumes projected – presents a noirish Near Future America where power is exercised – and various levels of the social order are controlled – through the Biological applications of Nanotechnology. His intricate overview of a future where the biological nature of humans is digitally controllable marks him as an author whose work may seem increasingly salient. [JC]
