(1953- ) US author and officer in the USAF with a PhD in physics who began publishing sf with "The Man I'll Never Be" for Amazing in May 1987. Return to Honor (1989), Assault on Alpha Base (1990) and Strike Eagle (1991) are Technothrillers, but Lifeline (1990) with Kevin J Anderson is of sf interest, and marked both writers as names to watch. Further novels with Anderson (whom see for further details of both books), The Trinity Paradox (1991) and Assemblers of Infinity (September-December 1992 Astounding; 1993), interestingly plumb the moral perils of Time Travel and examine some of the darker implications of Nanotechnology. The Craig Kreident books are routine thrillers at the edge of sf. [JC]
