Welsh, Louise

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1965-    ) UK author whose six novels to date range across several genres, from detections to historicals, none of the first five with fantastic content; of sf interest are A Lovely Way to Burn (2014) and Death Is a Welcome Guest (2015), the first instalments of a projected sequence to be known as The Plague Times Trilogy. Disaster in the form of an extremely deadly Pandemic strikes very-Near Future London, causing immense social chaos and hinting of Dystopia to come. On the basis of the competence of the first, future volumes may profitably explore this familiar territory. Welsh has cited Terry Nation's Television series Survivors (1975-1977) as an influence.
