(1958- ) UK author whose A Matter of Oaths (1988) engagingly presents a familiar sf character – the Amnesiac protagonist who experiences flashback hints of a destiny larger than any of those around him dare contemplate – within a cogently described post-Cyberpunk frame dominated by The Guild of Webbers, Starship pilots who link two corrupt Galactic Empires, each ruled by an immortal emperor (see Immortality). The protagonist is Black; the covers for both British and the American editions portray a white hero. [JC]
