(1941- ) US soldier, research analyst for NASA, and author who has also written as by Flash Richardson; he began to publish work of genre interest with "Analog" in Analog for August 1971. In his Hard SF Saturnalia sequence comprising Saturnalia (1986) and A Lion on Tharthee (1987), which is partially set in a Space Habitat, an odd-couple pair of protagonists becomes involved in First Contact adventures centring on Iapetus, a moon of Saturn (see Outer Planets). His style is crisp, and conveys information easily. [JC]
