(1989-    ) Scottish teacher and author in whose first novel, Fallow (2016), two brothers embark on a hegira through Scotland, with a picaresque shaping to the tale that evokes the supernatural. He is of sf interest for his third novel, Model Citizens (2022), set in a Near Future world where the growing stresses facing Homo sapiens are, perhaps, solved by the issuing/creating of Clone companions, who are designed to earth the intolerable . Not perhaps as poignantly as the Android protagonist of Kazuo Ishiguro's Klara and the Sun (2020), the protagonist's clone, known as a junior, endures stress that it may be no model can ultimately bear.
