(? - ) UK journalist and author whose 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 – hired by the government to track surviving acolytes of the late Martin Martin, who threatens to return as the Messiah – accomplishes little, though he perceives something of the nightmarishness of the world .
