Perrault, Ernest G

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1922-2010) Canadian author and librettist who in prose concentrated on nonfiction regional studies of British Columbia, where he was born and died. Of his novels The Twelfth Mile (1972), about an Arctic disaster, is marginal; of direct sf interest is Spoil (1975), a Near Future tale in which drilling for oil in the Arctic causes a profound Ecological Disaster when a rig blows and crude oil flows into the ocean.
