Peck, Richard E

Tagged: Author | Critic

(1936-    ) US author and academic and university administrator, an active critic of both literature in general and sf in particular. He began publishing sf with "In Alien Waters" for Venture in November 1969. His sf novel, Final Solution (1973), is an amusing but grim tale in which a US academic is sent fifty years into the future (through Cryonics) to find universities and Cities merged into a hideous conglomerate Keep and sealed off, with Middle America living comfortably outside.

Peck is not to be confused with Richard (Wayne) Peck (1934-    ), author of the Blossom Culp series of children's fantasies. [JC/PN]
