Bond, Edward

(1934-    ) UK playwright, active from the late 1950s, notable for his excoriations – both in terms of discourse and through the extreme violence of many of his plays – of the British class system, of the Politics that supports it, and (from a Marxist perspective) of the late capitalism that makes its continuance possible; it may not be adventitious that his first West End premiere came only half a century after his produced play. Some of his early work suffered ...

Yates, Frances A

(1899-1981) UK academic and author, active from the mid-1920s, associated with the Warburg Institute from 1941 until her death. Her influence on sf has been indirect, though her ideas and discoveries have had a pervasive influence on authors of Fantastika in general, notably including John Crowley and Gene Wolfe (see Memory).

(1940-    ) Canadian critic, editor and author, in the UK from 1969; married to Judith Clute from 1964, partner of Elizabeth Hand since 1996. His first professional publication was the long sf-tinged poem "Carcajou Lament" (Winter 1960 [ie Autumn 1959] Triquarterly), though he only began publishing sf reviews in 1964 and sf proper with "A Man Must Die" in New Worlds for November 1966, where much of his earlier criticism also appeared. This criticism, despite some studiously ...
