(1945- ) US neurobiologist, psychiatrist specializing in sleep research and author, who began publishing work of genre interest with "Susie's Reality" in the UK edition of Worlds of If (see If) for May-June 1973. His first sf novel, Gloryhits (1978) with Mark Noble, deals with a Disaster following upon research in recombinant DNA, a government-funded Genetic Engineering experiment designed to create a Superman but which, administered in the form of the eponymous LSD-like Drug, causes deformities in children subsequently conceived, and threatens a universally fatal Pandemic if released. His second, The California Coven Project (1981), similarly exploits his professional knowledge in a Near-Future venue. [JC]
