Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) US playwright, journalist and author of whose various work the Young Adult Danger Boy sequence beginning with Ancient Fire (2001) is of sf interest. The young protagonist, son of the inventor whose Invention is a Time Machine, is forced by a combination of Time Travel and portal transfer into an Alternate World modestly similar to ours, where his adventures continue. His returns to modern California counterpoint further expeditions into various eras. Two Trickster Tango (2016 chap) is a Shapeshifter fantasy; at least two Tricksters [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] are involved. [JC]
