(1927-2003) UK author with a training in physics, employed as a technical officer in the thermal insulation business, whose first published sf story was "Cog" in New Worlds, April 1966; he had previously sold crime and fantasy fiction, an earlier nonrealistic story being "Colossus of Roads" (August 1961 Storyteller). His sf novels – The Symmetrians (1966), which concerns a Dystopian response to nuclear Holocaust in which a cult of "Absolute Symmetry" becomes the world Religion, and The Flowers of February (1970) for Robert Hale Limited, featuring deadly spores from outer space – are straightforward but uninspired.
