(? - ) UK author whose sf debut was the novel The Bend in the Sky (2012), a humorous Multiverse-traversing romp in which our universe must be saved by unlikely non-heroes from destruction by a psychopathic tyrant; there is some enjoyable incidental inventiveness, though perhaps over-much reliance on comic names distantly reminiscent of Douglas Adams's. One conceit is that the lengthy and many-stranded narrative action, having been triggered by a sound-system glitch at a higher-universal rock concert, takes place between performances at that same event (see Time Distortion).
