(1956- ) UK author, now in the US, who began publishing sf with "Empty Barrels" in Analog for June 1978, his best-known story being "Ideologies" (October 1980 Analog), and whose first novel, The Janus Syndrome (1981), put into Space-Opera guise a tale involving racial oppression, romantic exaggerations of material, and masquerades. He then fell silent, though he has more recently published two Ties: Event Horizon (1997), novelizing the film Event Horizon (1997); and Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda: Waystation (2004), based on the Television series.
