Somers, Jeff

Tagged: Author

(1971-    ) US author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Glad and Big" in Apparitions for November 1995. He came to wider notice with his Avery Cates Cyberpunk sequence beginning with The Electric Church (2007) and ending with The Final Evolution (2011), set in a noirish Near Future New York, at the centre of a world run on Dystopian lines; Cates himself is an Antihero who finds himself pitted against the Cyborg missionaries of the Electric Church, who are entirely willing to convert unbelievers by force (see Religion). In the end the survival of Homo sapiens is at stake. The Trickster sequence is fantasy, with Magic and mages filling the foreground. [JC]
