Cohen, Barney

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

Working name of US author Bernard Halsband Cohen (1944-    ), whose first novel of genre interest was The Night of the Toy Dragons (1977). The Taking of Satcon Station (1982) with Jim Baen, the first of two Asher Bockhorn sf thrillers, is an engagingly over-the-top application of private-eye idioms and plots (Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon [1930] being much in evidence) to near space, the eponymous satellite being the focus for the climax. Blood on the Moon (1984), involving Mormons and murder and leftwing plots on the Moon in 2084, is similar but grimmer. He has written nonfiction as Bernard Halsband Cohen. [JC]
