Icon made by Freepik from


(1930-2015) US author who published his first story, "Monster Tracks", in If in October 1964 solo, but became best known for the collaborations with Piers Anthony which comprise all his book-length work. These began with two sf novels, The Ring (1968) – the titular device being imposed on criminals to provide an artificial conscience that punishes conscious wrongdoing with severe pain (see Crime and Punishment) – and the rather more lightweight The E.S.P. Worm (1970). After a substantial delay, the collaborations with Anthony continued with the five-book Kelvin of Rud series of fantasies: Dragon's Gold (1987), Serpent's Silver (1988), Chimaera's Copper (1990), Orc's Opal (1990) and Mouvar's Magic (1992).
