Emshwiller, Peter R

Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) US actor, illustrator and author, son of Carol Emshwiller and Ed Emshwiller, who has also worked as Stoney Emshwiller; of sf interest is his Near Future series of noir tales – The Host (1991) and Short Blade (1992) – set in a New York directly extrapolated (seemingly) from the mean-streets City 1970s Manhattan threatened to become. The action is intense but the ambience now seems less than prescient. [JC]
