Wernham, Mark

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) UK journalist and author whose first novel, Martin Martin's on the Other Side (2008), is a Satire so gonzo and broad that it approaches slapstick Absurdist SF in its portrayal of the vaguely Near Future Britain, where the action unpacks. The protagonist Jensen Interceptor – hired by the government to track surviving acolytes of the late television psychic Martin Martin, who threatens to return as the Messiah – accomplishes little, though he perceives something of the nightmarishness of the world.
