(1950-    ) UK journalist, teacher and author who has also written Horror as by Christopher Carr, and who began publishing sf with "Hello Hugo" in Twisted Circuits (anth 1987) edited by Mick Gowar, and whose vigorously-told sf and fantasy, usually for Young Adult readers, include The Network (1988), an Urban Fantasy [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] in which the London Underground becomes animate, and Dark Toys and Consumer Goods (coll 1989), which includes "The Hologram of Uncle Emilio" and some other sf tales original to this volume similar to those later assembled as TechnoFear: A Collection of Tales of Tomorrow (coll 1997). Most of Staig's later work is horror, like Carnival of the Dead (2000), first volume in the projected Mutant series. He also wrote the illuminating Italian Western: The Opera of Violence (1975) with Tony Williams. [JC]
