Chase, Robert R

Tagged: Author

(1948-    ) US author initially associated with Analog for stories like his first, "Seven Scenes from the Ultimate Monster Movie" in 1984; he has remained active with this magazine, producing stories in more than one sequence, none collected into book form. Chase began to publish novels with the Game of Fox and Lion sequence of sf adventures set in a feudalized interplanetary venue, featuring a protagonist with genetically enhanced powers (see Genetic Engineering): The Game of Fox and Lion (1986) and Crucible (1991). Intrigues, Genetic Engineering, and a dash of Religion generate a moderately engaging narrative. Shapers (1989), about an Amnesia victim who awakens in a strange world, also invokes sf tradition. More recently, Chase has begun to contribute lively book reviews to Revolution Science Fiction at www.revolutionsf.com/. [JC]
