Alexander D'Angelo


Alexander D’Angelo is currently working on a PhD in the field of contemporary Science Fiction:

The Return of the Residual : An analysis of selected “British Boom” Science Fiction works by Richard Morgan in a socio-political context.

I have completed the first chapter, subject to later correction and adjustment.  This was a background chapter, and in some ways possibly the most complex, since it drew together many strands relating to Boom Science Fiction and society. I am at present at work on the second chapter, which is more narrowly focussed on Morgan’s work. The following chapters will concentrate on literary and thematic analyses of three books by Morgan – the Kovacs series.
