(1969-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Halves Interrupted" in Barbaric Yawp for December 1997; most of his work has been horror, including the Carl Freeman sequence beginning with Phoenix Island (2014). Of sf interest is The Point (2018), a Young Adult tale which unites tropes from the Space Cadet juveniles from the previous century and the Superhero origin story. The young protagonist, after joining a revamped West Point Academy, must learn to control her Posthuman Superpower before her control of raw energy backfires. [JC]
