Riddle, A G

(?   -    ) US internet start-up entrepreneur and author whose first series, the Origin Mystery sequence beginning with The Atlantis Gene (2013), complicatedly unravels a conspiracy involving secret knowledge of the Evolution of Homo sapiens via a possible Forerunner input channelled through Atlantis and, later, Nazis. The Extinction Files sequence beginning with Pandemic (2017) features a manufactured Ebola-like Pandemic which spreads rapidly, though Technothriller riffs throughout the long tale give some hope for survival: Villains may be responsible. In his third series, the Long Winter sequence beginning with Winter World (2019), a budding Superman must solve the problem of planetary icing-over (see Climate Change) by thwarting the schemes of what may be Robot Aliens attempting to prepare the world for an Invasion; Alternate Worlds are invoked.
