(1980- ) UK medical writer, editor and author, active from around 2003, both in Fandom and as a reviewer and critic. He served as Features Editor of Vector (2006-2011), and more demandingly for Strange Horizons as Reviews Editor (2006-2010) and as Editor-in-Chief (2011-2017). A large selection from the critical and review work he published during this period has been assembled as All These Worlds: Reviews and Essays (coll 2023). This output is unfailingly lucid and informed, though its air of equalitarian bonhomie can mask an accurately sharp tongue for bad work. He is one of the central critics of sf to have emerged in the twenty-first century. [JC]
