(1940-2019) Danish author who worked in various modes, from realism to Kafka-inspired modernism. His one sf work, Termush, Atlanterhavskysten (1967; trans Sylvia Clayton as Termush 1969), tells of the Post-Holocaust psychological problems encountered by a group of rich survivors dwelling in their luxury shelter after a nuclear World War Three. While bona fide sf, Termush is also a parable of the alienation of modern, materialistic Man. [ND/JC]
