"UK translator and author whose first novel, Demon-4 (1984) , describes with a quite chilling quasilyrical remoteness a Post-Holocaust suicide mission undertaken, just after the end of World War Three, by the eponymous Cyborg probe in order to dismantle a doomsday device. Most of his later Technothrillers, like Nightrider (1985) , Fire Lance (1986) , The Highest Ground (1988) , Shadow Hunters (1991) and Chasing the Sun (1992) , rework his territory, which might be defined as the Near Future seen in terms of military Disasters, threatened or consummated; but Frankenstein's Children (1990) , set in what remains of the Amazonian rainforest, gathers this material into a metaphorically rich whole, envisioning the entire diseased enterprise of exploitation and "development" as a collective surrender to the overstepping venture of Victor Frankenstein himself. The Frankenstein Monster, in this book, is the torn and galvanized world itself (see Ecology)." (from Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy) ; Signed by Author
