(1925-1990) UK research chemist and author. His first four sf novels, all as by Peter Dagmar, were not exceptional: Alien Skies (1962), Spykos 4: Strange Life-Forms on Unexplored Planets (1962; vt Spaceways 1973), Sands of Time (1963) – a fairly complex Time-Travel tale in which visitors from the future attempt to destroy a post-World War Three super-Computer, perhaps to avert a Future War – and Once in Time (1963; vt Mind Probe 1973). Mars 314 (1970), under his own name, renders Near-Future space flight, in the first manned Spaceship to Mars, with some verisimilitude. Two Equals One (1982), his last Peter Dagmar title, features an electronic spying device which can read Computer memories. Stargrail (1989) and Nexweb (1990), both as Pinchin, attempt to marry sf and occultism. [JC]
