Working name of US author Daniel Thomas Maddox (1945- ) who began publishing polished short stories with "The Mind Like a Strange Balloon" for Omni in June 1985. His only novel to date, Halo (1991), moves from a Cyberpunk Earth to a Space Habitat, engaging en route in an intense contemplation of the nature of artificial intelligence (see AI; Cybernetics; Robots) in a Virtual-Reality environment. The tale is intermittently hectic, but charged with energy. Maddox has published nothing in the field since 1992. [JC]
