(1935- ) US author whose first sf novel, Earth (1972), is a competent adventure involving an ecologically-sound culture attempting to cope with a Ruined Earth from within a Keep; confusingly, this planet, which the protagonist Andrew Ames has discovered, is called Earth, just as is Ames's home planet. The sequel, Complex Man (1973), is set on another planet (not called Earth), where some higher-tech solutions are found for various crises. [JC]
