(1932-1997) Australian journalist, playwright and author, mostly in the UK from 1951; she was the sister of Richard Neville (1941-2016), editor of Oz in the 1960s and author of Footprints of the Future: Handbook for the Third Millennium (2002). Neville was not much drawn to sf, though her second novel, The Love-Germ (1969), is an occasionally sharp sf Satire set in the Near Future, which traces the course of the eponymous mutant bug as it transforms society.
