Cave, Peter

Tagged: Author

(1940-    ) UK author who has only occasionally published work in the fantastic, the first known examples being "Cry Martian" for Impulse in 1966 and "Scoop!" for Tit-Bits in 1967. From 1971 he wrote various sex novels as by Petra Christian, both solo and in collaboration with Christopher Priest, who also wrote solo novels under the name (though Priest does not acknowledge this work). Cave is known for three ties to the television series The New Avengers (1976-1977) (see The Avengers): House of Cards (1977), The New Avengers: Last of the Cybernauts (1977) and The New Avengers: Hostage (1977). A further Tie, Invasion: Earth: The Last Echo (1998), novelizes material from the BBC TV series, Invasion: Earth (1998), whose six 50-minute episodes deal darkly with a seemingly unstoppable Invasion of Aliens from other Dimensions.
