(?   -?   ) US author of Miriam and the Mystic Brotherhood (1912), an occult fantasy whose narrative extends well into the Near Future, as members of the eponymous order gain aetheric visions of a transformed America, with the previous government replaced by a high-Technology Utopia; other planets are also seen as inhabited.

Hogan, Ernest

(1955-    ) US author, married to Lee Hogan, who began publishing sf with "The Rape of Things to Come" for Amazing in March 1982. His first novel, Cortez on Jupiter (1990), uses the subversive tone of Cyberpunk to tell the tale of a countercultural street artist looking for fulfilment, travelling from the usual hyperbolic Near-Future Southern California by jagged stages to Jupiter, where he confronts without blinking an Alien species with whom it has been death for more ...

This became ...

Robinson, Roger

(1943-    ) UK computer programmer, bibliographer and publisher, active in UK Fandom for many years. The Writings of Henry Kenneth Bulmer (1983 chap; rev 1984 chap) is an exhaustive Bibliography of one of the most prolific sf writers, and Who's Hugh?: An SF Reader's Guide to Pseudonyms (1987) is similarly exhaustive in its listing of Pseudonyms. Criticized at first for its failure to annotate its findings – so that, for instance, pseudonyms used for sf could not be ...
