(1942- ) UK author, most of whose works are nonfiction popularizing Astronomy; he also published the two-volume Eric Kendall series of Young Adult sf tales comprising Space Intruder (1965) and The Moon-Winners (1965). Young Eric, after halting a rogue planet from striking Earth in the first volume, again must fight the obduracy of the British defense establishment in the second after responding to an emergency, as the Americans, who seem to have been first to reach the Moon, have fallen ominously silent.
