(1947- ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "The Bidderfrost Dragon" for Coven in March 1970, but as a writer has been one of the less active members of a Texas grouping which included Howard Waldrop, his collaborator on the Near Future The Texas-Israeli War: 1999 (July-August 1973 Galaxy as "A Voice and Bitter Weeping"; much exp 1974), the eponymous conflict being set in a balkanized Post-Holocaust America, where the loss of any sustaining Technology has required the use of legacy Weapons, including tanks, of World War Two vintage, as well as weaponry and cast from the Westerns toolbox.
