MORGAN, Chris
(1946-)
   UK editor, critic and writer who began publishing sf with "Clown Fish and Anemone" for Science Fiction Monthly in 1975. His fiction is generally unexceptional, though some stories - such as "Losing Control" (1989), about the crew of a crashed starship surviving by means ofincestuous marriage and a strange form of symbiosis with an ALIEN species - involve interesting and innovative ideas. CM's main contribution hasbeen as a critic, notably in The Shape of Futures Past: The Story of Prediction (1980), a comprehensive and valuable survey of pre-1945PREDICTIONS about the future. Future Man (1980) is a history of sf speculations on possible biological and behavioural changes in humanity.
