Tagged: Author

(1981-    ) UK singer/songwriter and author of the Jimmy Coates sequence, beginning with Jimmy Coates: Killer (2005; vt Jimmy Coates: Assassin? 2005), a Young Adult novel of some interest for the intensity of its depiction of young Jimmy's dilemma: Genetically Engineered to unfold into a Superman assassin at the age of 18, he finds himself gripped by these powers several years too young. His rite of passage towards adulthood is therefore doubly fraught: internally, he is at odds with "himself"; externally, he could be fatal to others. [JC]
