(1963- ) UK journalist, historian and author much of whose work has focused on the history of Great Britain from a conservative position, during the course of which he has argued that George W Bush's term of office as American President was successful due to his prosecution of the second Iraq War. Of sf interest is The Aachen Memorandum (1995), a spoofish Near Future thriller in which UK fears of cultural obliteration within the Dystopian EEC are not so much guyed as sentimentally valorized. What Might Have Been: Imaginary History from Twelve Leading Historians (anth 2004) assembles Alternate History hypotheses (see History in SF). [JC]
