(1962-    ) US author of Bob Bridges: An Apocalyptic Fable (1999), scattily Equipoisal between sf and Beast Fable [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below], whose Computer programmer eponym has been predicting nuclear Holocaust, a vision confirmed by a cockroach from the Far Future, long after the Ruined Earth has been healed by cockroaches. The telling of the tale competently evokes authors as dissimilar as Donald Harrington (1935-2009), author of The Cockroaches of Stay More (1989), Kurt Vonnegut Jr and William Wharton, author of Franky Furbo (1989).
