One half of the gestalt entity Grant Naylor
, which penned the first 6 series of Red Dwarf
for the BBC
, along with two books, Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers
and Better Than Life
Grant Naylor seperated in (about) 1997. Rob went on to write the intermittently funny fourth Red Dwarf book, Backwards; the rather poor-quality BBC sitcom The Dark Ages; the little-known sci-fi comedy The Strangerers (featuring some decidedly 1950s style aliens who come down to Earth); and his most recent, the Red Dwarf-like book Colony.
Funnier than Doug Naylor (the other half) and noticeably darker, Rob's stuff is usually well worth a look.
