Cordy, Michael

Tagged: Author

(1961-    ) UK author whose first novel, The Miracle Strain (1997), suggests that, through Near Future developments in DNA research, a new Messiah – whose genetic makeup will replicate Jesus Christ's unique makeup, and who will therefore be able to heal the sick, etc – can be found, thus satisfying the long-held plans of a secret Brotherhood, which has existed since the first Messiah's death. Crime Zero (1999) employs Genetic Engineering tropes in a medical sf (see Medicine) thriller about an attempt to create non-criminal males; Lucifer (2001; vt The Lucifer Code 2006) describes another catastrophic religious response to the chance that humanity may be manipulated into triggering Armageddon.
