(1917-1981) British Army officer who served in World War Two, and began a writing career after his retirement from the service, his first work of genre interest being "Missionary Stew" for Blackwoods in 1960. His two sf novels, Our Man for Ganymede (1969) and A Skull and Two Crystals (1972), though not innovative, do explore the conventions of Space Opera in a manner both literate and alert. [JC]
