(1930-    ) UK author, and nurse for the mentally handicapped. Shipwreck (1975) won the 1975 Gollancz/Sunday Times sf contest jointly with Chris Boyce's Catchworld (1975). Calmly and inexorably, it tells the story of the inevitable death of a man whose Spaceship lands disabled on a planet orbiting Capella; the Ecology he is faced with is inimical to human survival. That this grim anti-Robinsonade telegraphs the most likely outcome of such an occurrence from the outset has never made the tale popular with readers. [JC]
