(?   -    ) UK author in whose first novel, The Waiting Rooms (2020), is set in a Near Future Dystopian world where – after an antibiotic crisis twenty years earlier marked by a sudden increase of bacterial immunity to Drugs – those over seventy are enclosed in the eponymous coercive Keeps, as because of their untreatable contagiousness they are in themselves a kind of Pandemic. A Technothriller plot gives some hope that a previously baulked cure for tuberculosis (see Medicine) might free the elderly of the race from bondage. [JC]
