(1938-1991) US author of three Planetary Romances – all set on the planet Naphar – whose richly layered Fantasy surface conceals much sf underpinning: Naphar's poisonous environment has an sf explanation; the planet has been colonized by humans who interbred with the native race; and contacts with galactic civilization remain active.

Journey to Membliar (1987) and its immediate sequel Burning Tears of Sassurum (1988) comprise a quest tale culminating in dynastic revelations in the capital city. [JC]
