Pseudonym of US author Luke Wallin (1943-    ) whose work under his own name is either nonfantastic or nonfiction. He is of sf interest for the Young Adult Bestiary Trilogy beginning with Bestiary Mountain (1985), set partly on the Moon, a Dystopian state governed by a puritanical cadre, and partly in Ruined Earth venues. The young protagonists – most of the action focuses on twins, who are Telepathic – escape from their lunar domain, which includes at least one Zoo designed to preserve species taken from Earth, and come into a politically effective rapport with their human relatives, and with Genetically Engineered sentient animals, specifically the Round Beast who must either defeat an inimical AI or persuade it of the complex sanctity of all life. The Blacklight Chronicles beginning with Fire Mage (2011) is a fantasy sequence. [JC]
