Coville, Bruce

Tagged: Author

(1950-    ) US author of sf and fantasy, mostly the latter, almost exclusively juveniles. Of some sf interest are: Murder in Orbit (1987; vt Space Station ICE-3 1987); My Teacher is an Alien (1989) and its sequels, My Teacher Fried my Brains (1991), My Teacher Glows in the Dark (1991), all three assembled as My Teacher is an Alien: 3 Books in One (omni 1995), plus and My Teacher Flunked the Planet (1992); Philip José Farmer's The Dungeon #2: The Dark Abyss (1989), a tie; the A.I. Gang sequence for children – Operation Sherlock (1986), Robot Trouble (1986) and Forever Begins Tomorrow (1986); and the Rod Allbright sequence of humorous sf adventures, Aliens Ate My Homework (1993) and I Left My Sneakers in Dimension X (1994). None of this work can easily be thought of as seriously imagined, though The One Right Thing (coll, 2008) is both competent and varied. [JC]
