(?   -    ) UK author who began to publish work of genre interest with "The Original Word for Rain" in Zahir for Spring 2006, a fantasy. Of some sf interest is Wolfhound Century (2013), a Near Future Urban Fantasy [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] which begins the projected Vissarion Lom sequence. Lom, a noirish police inspector, travels to his country's capital – which is much like Moscow – in order to track down insurgents. He soon falls through the cracks of the mundane into a savage myth-drenched world dictated by Magic, and increasingly taking on Dystopian characteristics, with Urban Fantasy tropes revealing themselves as Satirical of the new Russian order. A giant Spaceship, bolted together and perhaps toxically nonfunctional, begins to dominate the landscape prior to its launch disaster-wards. [JC]
