(?   -    ) US author, principally of short fiction, who began to publish work of genre interest with "Long Past Midnight" for Say ... #2 in Spring 2003. He edited the Airship-themed anthology All-Star Zeppelin Adventure Stories (anth 2004) with Jay Lake. Moles's novella Seven Cities of Gold (2005 chap) is set in an Alternate History version of modern South America transformed by its eighth-century colonization by Spanish Catholics (see Jonbar Point) who built the legendary Cities of the title; the Japanese heroine's upriver adventures carry echoes of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness (February-April 1899 Blackwood's Magazine; 1925). "Finisterra" (December 2007 F&SF), a tale of retro aeronautics including Balloons on a colony planet (see Colonization of Other Worlds), won the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award. [DRL]
