Pseudonym of UK historian and author Michael Edwardes (1923-1990), who specialized in Indian history under his own name; as Cassilis, his sf novel, Winding Sheet (1978), posits a Near Future Britain where the monarchy has regained genuine power, though Scotland has become more or less autonomous, and a revolt is in the offing. Edwardes is not to be confused with the business executive and writer Sir Michael Edwardes, who gained his knighthood not for his work as a writer but for his triumphs as a CEO. [JC]
