US writer long in Canada but resident in the US again from 1995, whose first novel, Passion Play (1992), depicts an American governed by the fundamentalist religious right. The story is told by a female private eye in standard noir style, down to the sequence of interviews with suspects which make up the centre of the narrative; but although there are fewer surprises at this level than perhaps desirable, SS conveys throughout a sense of revisionist scrutiny of the conventions he follows. This scrutiny is very much more evident in Nobody's Son (1993), a fantasyset almost entirely after the hero has won the princess. Resurrection Man (1995) is also a fantasy.
