Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of US author James D Foster (1952-    ), most of whose work has combined horror and sf, as in his first novel which starts the Thunder series, Footprints of Thunder (1995), in which an incursion of Dinosaurs into urban America is dealt with primarily in terms of the feelings aroused; and his second, Fragments (1997), in which the Cybernetic implications of combining a passel of idiot savants to generate a joint mind are subordinated to a horrific depiction of the nature of that mind. Further novels continue this affect-driven mix. [JC]
