Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1942-    ) US author whose first novel was The Hephaestus Plague (1973), filmed as Bug (1975), a tale which starts strongly, with vivid descriptions of the effect of an irruption from Underground of a new species of beetle capable of emitting fire, but which weakens when it begins to deal with a Scientist who becomes overfascinated with these beetles, which seem to comprise a Hive Mind. His later novels – The Spirit (1977), about the appearance of an ominous Bigfoot in northern Canada, Sigmet Active (1978), a Disaster novel, and The Man Who Would Not Die: An Unusual Ghost Story (1981) – were borderline sf.
