DuBois, Brendan

Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) US author of thrillers, some of which come close to the Technothriller, though they do not usually push the envelope of the present day into sf. Of genre interest is Resurrection Day (1999), a Sidewise Award-winning Alternate History of the United States after a botched handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 has led to World War Three. A decade later, as the action passes through a devastated New York, it begins to look as though President Kennedy managed to survive in secret. Six Days (2001) occupies less unusual territory in its depiction of an America once again in a state of collapse, this time because of a nuclear War between India and Pakistan. [JC]
