Weaver, Michael D

Tagged: Author

(1961-1998) US author and systems programmer who began publishing sf with Mercedes Nights (1987), a dark Cyberpunk-flavoured fable of cloning – the title is the plural of the name of the protagonist, Mercedes Night, a film star whose illegal Clones are being sold as love-slaves. The twenty-first century, heated and hectic and violent, seems to be about to endure a World War IV. Set in the same universe, centuries later, My Father Immortal (1989) counterpoints the isolated spacefaring lives of the survivors of Earth's traumas with sequences depicting the lives of the "fathers" before the children left the planet. In A Second Infinity (1996), humans from the Far Future seek help from the contemporary world, with dangerous implications. Weaver's other main work is fantasy, the Wolf-Dreams Werewolf sequence comprising Wolf-Dreams (1987), Nightreaver (1988) and Bloodfang (1989), all assembled as Wolf-Dreams (omni 1989). [JC]
