Calhoun, Kenneth

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) US academic and author whose first novel, Black Moon (2014), combines, with some Equipoisal grasp, a Near Future Zombie apocalypse setting in an afflicted America, with an almost metafictional contemplation of the effects of sleep deprivation on human beings. The protagonist – one of the few who retains the capacity to sleep after an event of unknown origin and nature has transformed almost all humans into psychotic victims of sleeplessness – navigates this jagged landscape with some aplomb.
