Borden, William

Tagged: Author

(1938-    ) US author whose sf Satire, Superstoe (1967), follows the eponymous Professor and his colleagues as they take over a Near Future America, transforming it into an enforced Utopia and imposing world peace through the use of nuclear weapons and germ warfare to convince their foes in Asia that they mean business; the effect, perhaps surprisingly, is sustainedly comic.
