Willett, John

Tagged: Author

(1932-2001) US author, editor and art critic (for the San Diego Metropolitan 1996-1999), who began to publish genre fiction with the children's fantasy novella The Singer in the Stone (1981 chap), in which a Sleeper Awakes and a future world is changed. Willett is of direct sf interest for Aubade for Gamelon (1984), a somewhat ponderous treatment of the trope of superhuman Mutants who have emerged in the wake of nuclear testing as humanity's salvation or nemesis; Immortality may be possible. The genre of the author's third, unpublished novel «Bachman's Warbler» is not known. [DRL]
