Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) Scots author, illustrator and graphic designer who in collaboration with George Erskine wrote the Counter Force sf tales for Young Adult readers, Beware the Tektrons (1988) and Find the Tektrons (1988). Here, in the early twenty-first century, six youngsters work together against the Alien Tektrons who have secretly infiltrated Earth. The Ally Fraser Stories opening with The Roman Letters (1997 chap) are Timeslip fantasies for younger children: in the first book, the eleven-year-old protagonist Ally Fraser acquires a magical set of wooden printing blocks which when used to make prints transport him to the depicted era of Scotland's past. Historical lessons are imparted.

Cameron should not be confused with the Ian Cameron who is a pseudonym of Donald Gordon Payne. [DRL]
