Pseudonym of UK author Jane Brady (1934-1985), whose work mostly comprised tales for older children. Her only sf novel, Comet (1975), set in a future post-technological Ruined Earth, treats the threat of looming Disaster – as an approaching Comet brightens in the sky – from the humanizing perspective of its young protagonists, who find a strange beauty in the phenomenon; and all proves well.
