(1962-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "As a Still Small Voice" for Full Spectrum 2 (anth 1989) edited by Lou Aronica, Shawna McCarthy, Amy Stout and Pat LoBrutto, and whose continuing, comic, Satirical focus on issues of Religion in a Western World increasingly assaulted by fundamentalisms surfaces most tellingly in his two novels: Prophets for the End of Time (1998), a fantasy in which genuine angels run up against institutional Christianity and personal eccentricities in their attempts to select two prophets to delineate the coming Armageddon; and the epistolary Letters from the Flesh (2004), which skewers the fake "debate" between the science of Evolution and the religious advocates of Creationism (vt Intelligent Design), while simultaneously depicting the first century CE Saul/Paul as an Alien, in an effort to explain the world we live in now.
