Watson, Angus

Tagged: Author

(1972-    ) UK author who initially wrote fantasy, primarily the Age of Iron sequence beginning with Age of Iron (2014). He is of some sf interest for his second sequence, the West of East series beginning with You Die When You Die (2017), set in an Alternate World America a millennium ago, where Magic works, though a band of lost Vikings takes refuge. Towards the end of the first volume, an Empress has a vision (see Predictions) of the arrival of a "putrefying cloud" of whites from across the sea (see Imperialism; Race in SF). An imprisoned Viking escapes further westward. More than one sequel is expected. [JC]
