Pseudonym of UK author Douglas Norton Buttrey (1918-1994), whose sf novel, The Man with Only One Head (1955), develops the theme of novels like Pat Frank's Mr Adam (1946): only one man (his name is Adams) is left fertile; and the subsequent moralistic World Federation set up to deal with the crisis is riddled with dissension. The effect is of offhand Satire rather than simple incompetence. [JC]
