McKitterick, Christopher

(1967-    ) US academic at the University of Kansas and author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Paving the Road to Armageddon" (May 1995 Analog), following this several further stories and essays in Analog and other magazine and anthology venues. His first novel Transcendence (2010) is a near future mix of cyberpunk and space opera whose wide-screen action range across a human-colonized Solar System, featuring an Alien artefact on Neptune's moon Triton (see Outer Planets), an AI in crisis and the prospect of interplanetary Future War.
