Way, Peter

Tagged: Author

(1936-    ) UK author whose first novel, The Kretzmer Syndrome (1968), is a Near-Future tale set in a bleak conformist UK susceptible to the theories of the eponymous scientist, who articulates Psychohistory laws that risk translating the country into a rigid Dystopia enabled by the Kretzmer Syndrome, which saps free will. Sunrise (1979) is set in London where the Victoria Line of the London Underground has been built to facilitate emergency communications, useful when an Invasion takes place. Some of his novels, like Super-Çeleste (1977) and Icarus (1980), are Technothrillers. [JC]
