(1964-    ) US systems consultant and author who at least on one occasion has written as Leinad Zeraus (his own name backwards). The Daemon sequence, comprising Daemon (2006 as Zeraus; 2009) and Freedom™ (2010), presents in a Technothriller idiom a complex scenario in which a high-tech "demon" within a vast distributed Computer network begins to treat humans as disposable through acts of widespread violence. Its "motivation" for doing so is not explained in terms of computer technology, but as a long-meditated revenge on Homo sapiens consummated after the death of the programmer/Videogame-designer responsible. Kill Decision (2012), also a technothriller, is more conventional. In Influx (2014), a revolutionary development in Physics is threatened, again in the style of the technothriller; this book won a Prometheus Award. [JC]
