Keegan, Mel

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of an unidentified author (?   -    ) resident in South Australia, whose fiction as Keegan has normally been written explicitly for gay markets; his sf includes the NARC sequence beginning with NARC 1: Death's Head (1991) and ending with NARC 5: Aphelion (2007), Space Operas featuring two gay paramilitaries in the Narcotics and Riot Control whose minds are Telepathically linked and who oppose the practices of large corporations capable (in the second volume) of strip-mining entire planets. Aquamarine (2000) is set Under the Sea in a Near Future Earth where the oceans have risen, and water-breathing humans (see Genetic Engineering) can be found. [JC]
