Working name of US author Steven Edward Vance (1952-    ), who has since the late 1980s focused largely on horror novels, though he began writing with some unremarkable but competently conceived sf adventures, including Planet of the Gawfs (1977), a Planetary Romance intended to be comic; All the Shattered Worlds (1980), a Space Opera; and The Hybrid (1981), an Apes as Human/Mutant tale. Later novels include The Hyde Effect (1986); The Asgard Run (1990), about a shipwrecked crew of Alien scientists encountered in the mountains of Wyoming; and Identity (2001), in which a serial killer is so radically re-created by plastic surgery that his Identity is forever untraceable.
