ROSS, David D.

ROSS, David D.
   US writer who began publishing sf with his Dreamers of the Day sequence - The Argus Gambit (1989) and The Eighth Rank (1991) - which complicatedly traces the political and cultural consequences of a 21st-century ecological disaster. The seriousness with which he undertakesthe task of underlining the nature of the problems faced by humanity goes some way to assuage the sense that DDR has not fully mastered the unstable relationship between generic plotting and didactic thematic material.
