King, Harold

Tagged: Author

(1945-2010) US author whose name has also been wrongly recorded as a joint pseudonym. King concentrates his focus on Technothrillers like Paradigm Red (1975; vt Red Alert 1977), where events – in this case the sabotage of a nuclear facility – hover at the edge of sf. World War III (1982), a Tie novelizing the Television drama, sets the beginning of World War Three in the very Near Future Alaska of 1984. Later works of some interest include The Hahnemann Sequela (1984), which is medical horror (> Horror in SF) and Shelkagari (1987), which involves a search for ancient treasure. [JC]
