Joint pseudonym of UK authors Simon Michael (1955-    ) and Peter Rosenberg (?   -    ) whose Near Future thriller, The Usurper (1988), is set in a Dystopian UK where the privileged live securely within a walled City of London (see Keep), and the unemployable masses live in suburbs. Social mobility is provided through Usurping – sanctioned killing of the employed for their jobs. From this, an adventure plot develops. [JC]
