While there, radiation mutates her code/soul, spawning in her the ability to travel through time by force of will. It seems as though the authors of crime fiction must decide either to maintain the conventions of the genre at the sacrifice of deeper political, historical or social probing, or to relinquish the conventions of genre altogether. Take, for example, the representation of a corrupt Black Economic Empowerment deal in Meyer’s 7 Days, as well as Nicol’s shady arms deals authorised by the government in Payback, including his character Mo Siq, whom Titlestad and Neser note is “a fictional combination of Mo and Shabir Schaik, the businessmen who facilitated the infamous Arms Deal on behalf of the Mbeki administration” (Titlestad and Neser 2010:268).

Co-creator of influential and best-selling computer games: Doom, Doom 2, Quake, Call of Cthulhu, Civilization, Age of Empires, etc. The obvious compromise – write literary under one name, genre under another – works for some, but is a stopgap solution while the industry struggles to catch up with the reality of what’s happening.
