(1940-    ) UK journalist and author, in US for many years. He is of some sf interest for his Admiral Morgan sequence of Near Future Technothrillers beginning with Nimitz Class (1997). The tales are centred on the American navy and its institutional allies and foes, as espionage and terrorism threats to America, mostly originating in Iran and/or China, are thwarted time and again. The first volume takes place around 2002, and the series (with some inconsistencies) maintains a similar distance from the present; in the seeming absence of any significant reference to 9/11, either a highly selective vision of the early twenty-first century is generated, or a conscious foray into realms of Alternate History. Robinson's focus on China, which has never wavered, may however seem less eccentric in the third decade of the new century. [JC]
