(1940- ) US lawyer, banker and author of two sf novels, each involving advances in Medicine: The Fourth Procedure (1995), in which foetal transplants have become possible, igniting a religious debate in America; and A Slow Burning (1999), set in the very Near Future where a brilliant neurosurgeon, using Nanotechnology, is able to repair damaged brains: the complicated plot involves the memory transfer of portions of the now-dead surgeon's knowledge (see Identity Transfer; Memory Edit).
