McALLISTER, Angus
(? -)
   Scottish writer whose first novel, The Krugg Syndrome (1988), briefly conceals the mild-mannered and amusing tale of a country boy in the big city by suggesting for a few pages that his personality has been replaced by that of a telepathic alien. AM's second novel, The Canongate Strangler (1990), plays more darkly with Doppelganger themes in a tale ofpossession, murder and (once again) ESP.
