(1941- ) US journalist and author in whose first novel, The Manna Enzyme (1982), Fidel Castro (1926-2016) plays a positive role, with the CIA and KGB seen negatively, in Near Future attempts to promulgate an Invention – the manna enzyme of the title – capable of ending world starvation. Most of Hoyt's works are thrillers; two of the John Denson sequence – The Weatherman's Daughters (2003) and Pony Girls (2004) – have some fantasy elements. [JC]
