(1967-    ) US author whose short fiction, which is mostly horror, has been assembled as Herniated Roots (coll 2012), Staring into the Abyss (coll 2013) and Tribulations (coll 2016). His first novel, Transubstantiate (2010), is a noirish thriller set in a Disaster-afflicted world – an experiment in controlling Overpopulation has catastrophically misfired, killing off most humans – though the protagonist may escape durance through a gestalt-like rapport (see Hive Minds) with a cadre of others on an Edenic Island. There are puzzles with something like Time Travel connected to this island, which evoke the less transparent moments of Lost (2004-2010). [JC]
