(1917-2010) Australian businessman, anthologist and author whose sf contribution is restricted to his first novel, Breakthrough (1960), portraying a Dystopia set in a Near Future land governed in totalitarian fashion by a dictator whose regime uses surgically implanted radio-controlled devices for purposes of repression. By this means all subjects can be remotely traced, subjected to neural Torture, or killed by an explosive charge; Psi Powers, not otherwise relevant to the plot, are invoked to facilitate the safe removal of such an implant from the main character.
