Morgan, J O

Tagged: Author

(1978-    ) Scottish poet, all of whose work to date has been in the form of book-length narrative poems, beginning with Natural Mechanical: Being a Rendering of the True Life Stories of Iain Seoras Rockliffe (2009 chap). Of sf interest is the seventh of these tales, The Martian's Regress (2020), set in an unspecified but moderately distant Near Future, with the planet long ago having suffered collapse from Ecological degradation and Climate Change in general. This world is seen from the perspective of a colonist who has returned from Mars, which is also environmentally degraded, on a pilgrimage of self-discovery; the relationship to C S Lewis's The Pilgrim's Regress (1933) is indistinct.
