Pseudonym of UK author and journalist Allan James Tucker (1929- ), whose Roy Rickman series, beginning with The Alias Man (1968), is essentially a jeremiad about a then-imminent 1970s world crisis, with the UK becoming in the Near Future a Soviet satellite, though it offers a sufficient sf displacement through the exploits of the multi-national spy Rickman to be of some interest.
