(?   -    ) US author in whose What Happened to the Indians (2000) America is threatened with an Alien Invasion, these events prefigured by UFO landings in the 1940s; and responds more vigorously than the "Indians" did when the white man first came to the continent. A markedly right-wing pattern of argument (see Politics), presented without remission, leads to peculiar plot turns: as when America decides to spook the aliens by initiating a perfectly justified nuclear conflict with China. The Military SF aspects of the tale are competent. [JC]
