Langley, Patrick

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) UK journalist, editor and author who is of sf interest for his first novel, Arkady (2018), set in a somewhat abstracted Near Future world, partly in an unnamed London, from which a poisonously Dystopian government oppresses a land increasingly transformed by Climate Change. Dreams of Arcadia shape the protagonists' Fantastic Voyage northwards by canal towards a perhaps imaginary better part of Britain. Though Arkady is not a Young Adult tale, Langley's style evokes at points the later work of William Mayne. [JC]
