Murphy, David

Tagged: Author

(1953-    ) Irish author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Undertow" for FTL in 1989, was a founding editor of the Irish genre magazine Albedo One (a position from which he stepped down in 2013) and has assembled his stories in Broken Heroes (coll 1995 chap), Alienations: Stories of the Near Future (coll 1998 chap) and further collections listed below. His first novel, Longevity City (2005), is a Paranoia-infused vision of a new future world under the almost total control of Big Pharma; the protagonist and his twin – they have been created as twins through invasive Genetic Engineering – fight back against the backdrop of a planet riven by Climate Change and other Disasters.
