      Ken MacLeod
Ken MacLeod is one of the leading exponents of the current Scottish school
of hard science fiction writers. His writing has been called "sly cultural
commentary", "subversive and observant" and "an uncommon degree of
political awareness", often with bright ideas and biting wit in the strong
Scottish characters reflecting his home country. He writes with a loving
respect for the SF greats. His new novel is titled Learning the World.
