(circa 1955-    ) Canadian teacher, publisher, playwright and author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Red Tide" (in Tesseracts6, anth 1997, edited by Carolyn Clink and Robert J Sawyer); he won Aurora Awards (see Awards) for "Like Water in the Desert" (August 2007 Challenging Destiny) and for "The Burden of Fire" (June 2010 Neo-Opsus Science Fiction Magazine). His first novel, the Near Future A Circle of Birds (1993 chap), is a meditation on loss and Amnesia set just as the new century is about to begin. The Steele Chronicles sequence of Cyberpunk Near Future detections set in Calgary, beginning with Defining Diana (2008), focuses on Cyborg-human functions and dysfunctions, with stresses increased by Genetic Engineering (and the series protagonist's alcoholism). A noir bleakness, not unrealistically, suffuses Calgary throughout. [JC]
