Ambler, Eric

Tagged: Author

(1909-1998) UK author of political and espionage thrillers, thought by many the equal of Grahame Greene or John Le Carré in this field; of these novels, The Dark Frontier (1936; rev 1990) is of sf interest in that the story is predicated on the construction of an atomic device (see Nuclear Energy). Compared to his later work, the action here is almost slapstick. [JC]
