Riviere, Sam

Entry updated 30 May 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1981-    ) UK teacher, publisher, poet and author, active as a poet from around 2005. He is of some sf interest for his first novel, Dead Souls (2021), a Satirical tale about poets and poetry whose intensely prolonged monologues perhaps benefit from their exposure to a modestly changed very Near Future world (see Fantastika). In the course of this a poet – accustomed to anxious channelling of his elders but now "outed" by QACS, a Computer system clearly capable of finding plagiarisms in any sentence uttered by a human – remakes himself.
