(1918-1997) UK author, primarily for television, who collaborated with Fred Hoyle on two serials, A for Andromeda and The Andromeda Breakthrough, and the subsequent novelizations under the same titles (1962 and 1964 respectively). He is not to be confused with the John Elliott (note different spelling) who wrote the anti-Chinese/Soviet political thriller Dragon's Feast (1970), itself a work of borderline sf. [JC]
