Jennings, Gary

Tagged: Author

(1928-1999) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Myrrha" for The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in September 1962; at virtually the same time he published his first book March of the Robots: From the Manikins of Antiquity to the Space Robots of Tomorrow (1962), a nonfiction study of Robots for the Young Adult market. For some years Jennings published stories with some frequency, always with F&SF, while concentrating as a novelist on historical fictions, sometimes containing elements of the supernatural, usually minor, as in the Aztec sequence beginning with Aztec (1980), which was continued after his death by Robert Gleason and Junius Podrug. A later volume, The Lively Lives of Crispin Mobey (coll 1988) as by Gabriel Quyth, contains fantasies verging on the tall tale. [JC]
