(1917-1993) US author, best known for Don't Go Near the Water (1956), book and film; in his only sf tale, The Last Ship (1988), is set in a Post-Holocaust world in which, seemingly, only one naval destroyer survives, though a Russian submarine is soon discovered, and then an Island, where the beleaguered (but modestly concupiscent) Captain must arrange for the men and women under his command to propagate the race again.
