(1912-1984) US author, mostly of short stories, and diplomat who graduated in science and later from the US Counter-Insurgency School. He was in his fifties when – to give himself something to do while stationed in West Africa – he began writing sf, with "Maiden Voyage" for The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in March 1965. His two Space Operas for Robert Hale Limited are People of the Rings (1975), whose titular rings are those of Saturn (see Outer Planets), and The Moon Microbe (1976), whose contagion from space may bring an end to terrestrial wars. Schutz also wrote thrillers [not listed below] as Jerry Scholl. [PN/DRL]
