Melton, Henry

Entry updated 26 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1949-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "We Hold These Rights ..." in Stellar #3 (anth 1977) edited by Judy-Lynn del Rey; his loose Small Towns, Big Ideas sequence for the Young Adult market, beginning with Emperor Dad (2007), tends to feature young protagonists who flummox the big world outside with the aid of Inventions and raw ingenuity, though they are sometimes exposed to threats to their personal Identity, and at least once – in Golden Girl (2010) – are thrust by Time Travel into desperate worlds, in this case a future Earth half-destroyed by an asteroid Disaster.
