(1954-    ) US software developer and author who began publishing his characteristic Hard-SF stories with "The Bully and the Crazy Boy" in Analog for November 1980, and whose short work, assembled in The Gentle Seduction (coll 1990), promulgates technological solutions to neatly couched problems (see Technology); "The Gentle Seduction" (April 1989 Analog), for instance, predicts the coming of the Singularity. David's Sling (1984) applies the same philosophy to problems of Near-Future political stress, as East and West come close to blows through lack of information-flow. Valentina: Soul in Sapphire (fixup 1984) with Joseph H Delaney (whom see for details), whose eponymous "soul" is an AI, has a similar bent. In Earthweb (1999) an Alien Invasion waged with robot Starships must be countered by Computer-savvy operatives from Earth. [JC]
