(1943-    ) UK author of The Final Correction (1978), a compact, acerbic sf novel set on a colony planet (see Colonization of Other Worlds) which effectively serves as a Prison for delinquents from Earth, each denizen subjected to a daily Memory Edit; the tale, ostensibly told in Young Adult terms, subjects its protagonist to a range of disruptive encounters with AIs and Aliens, with no easy resolution. Most of his other novels are nonfantastic, or couched for younger readers. [JC]
