Vielle, E E

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1913-2015) UK aviator, Royal Air Force officer (1934-1957) and author, known in his military capacity as Tubby Vielle; he was instrumental in the development of improved navigation and bombing systems in World War Two; he also wrote as by Donald Gordon and as by Paul Stanton. Village of Stars (1960) writing with David Beaty as by Paul Stanton is a Near-Future nuclear-World War Three thriller. His novels with Ian Cameron as by Donald Gordon, beginning with Star-Raker (1962), have similar Cold War settings, and tend to focus on the threat of the USSR; it is not certain, though it is likely, that all the Donald Gordon novels involved both authors. No Subway (1968), again set in the Near Future, describes the consequences of building a Channel Tunnel. [JC]
