(1933- ) UK painter and author, active in the latter capacity from 1955, his short stories and novels almost never edging into the fantastic. Of sf interest is Asylum (1966), a Satire set in very Near Future Britain seen in Absurdist SF terms as exactly an asylum, one in which – in a manner similar to the Theatre of the Absurd – extravagant behaviours are staged, and theatricals ritually enacted, including a tri-annual Wild Hunt [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below].
