(1916-1986) UK coal miner and, from 1946, respected author of novels mostly set in the industrial north of England; in his Near Future sf novel, Sam in the Morning (1965), London is dominated – it is an argument typical of modern Horror's take on industrial society – by a sewage company which has used unknown Technology to strip Britain clean of all that matters.
