(?   -    ) UK teacher, painter and author, latterly resident in France, whose only known books both appeared in 1980. The tales assembled in The Outer Reaches (coll 1980) seem previously unpublished, but knowledgeably and competently run a wide gamut of sf and fantasy, most of the stories being moderately pessimistic about the prospects for planet Earth. Overworld (1980), a Dystopian Satire set in an undefined Near Future, anticipates an even more minatory outcome to human civilization: the remnants of Homo sapiens, confined to a vast hermetic Keep, engage in internecine squabbles as resources fail; the ending hints of a Gaia-related recuperation of the planet.
