''US writer whose first five novels are stylish and potent exercises in a post-cyberpunk urban idiom, and comprise instalments in a loose ongoing series about the near future state of the USA. The sequence, reminiscent at points of the baroque New York detective fictions of Jerry Oster, consists of Ambient (1987), Terraplane (1988), and HEATHERN (1990 UK), which returns to New York and to Thatcher Dryden, who on this occasion must try (he fails) to make sense of a messiah figure whose fate in this venue is dourly predictable and whose humaneness seems, in this context, otherworldy, Elvissey (1993), Random Acts Of Senseless Violence (1993) and Going, Going, Gone (2000)'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
