(1943- ) US creative writing teacher (he has published manuals in that field) and author, not to be confused with Mark Washburn, one of whose novels, The Armageddon Game: A Novel of Suspense (1977), shares its main title with Frey's The Armageddon Game (1985) as J N Frey; only Washburn's tale verges on the fantastic. The Elixir (1986) is a Gothic-SF/fantasy story of Nazi Germany, where Hitler's secret weapon (see Hitler Wins) is the eponymous aid to Immortality. His U.S.S.A.: A Novel (1987), which depicts a Communist takeover of the USA, is unrelated to the Shared-World sequence with the same overall title. James N Frey should not be confused with James Frey, co-author of books as by Pittacus Lore. [JC]
