Brotherton, Mike

Tagged: Author

(1968-    ) US astronomer and author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Jack in the Box" in Talebones for Fall 1995. His first novel Star Dragon (2003) is a Hard SF Space Opera focused on the discovery that a dragon-shaped Alien being is composed of star matter; explorations in Xenobiology form the heart of the tale. His second novel Spider Star (2008) not dissimilarly centres on the exploration of a distant planet where an Alien Weapon has been accidentally activated, threatening widespread annihilation. His anthologies (for titles see below) tend to reprint fictions that explore issues within a scientific frame. [JC]
