(1916-1996) US author who began publishing sf with "'To Invade New York ...'" for Analog in August 1963, a tale whose basic idea was incorporated into his first novel, The Day They Invaded New York (1964), in which invading Aliens confuse New Yorkers by fouling the Transportation systems of the great city. A second novel, The Day New York Trembled (1967), creates its chaos through a pain-relieving Drug and its unexpected consequences. [JC]
