(? - ) UK doctor and author whose first novel, Goldblatt's Descent (2013), is a nonfantastic satire on the medical profession. Honig is of sf interest for The Senility of Vladimir P (2016), which though set in the Near Future clearly focuses its Satire on Vladimir Putin's regime in Russia. The tale takes place in a dacha (see Keep) where the aged P prates on about his years of tyrannical rule, conveying a sharp sense of the grotesqueness of power (see Antiheroes; Politics; Russia).
