Tagged: Author

(1926-    ) UK author whose first novel, A Land Without Mercy (1974), combines fantasy and tropes out of Prehistoric SF without much energy in a tale of early Britain. The Love Warrior (1975) is a Planetary Romance set partly on what was once a colony planet of a now forgotten Earth, and where Wars are now conducted by soldiers in medieval garb with advanced Weapons; in a complicated (but somewhat diffusely told) plot, the protagonist becomes a culture hero who, in the course of Starship travels to planets and over the progress of a slow martyrdom, brings his people to peace.
