Wismer, Don

Entry updated 16 November 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1946-    ) US author who began publishing sf with Starluck (1982), a competent sf adventure. Warrior Planet (1987) combines sf and fantasy elements in the story of an interstellar conflict between wizards and thieves. Planet of the Dead (1988) rather more convincingly sets a cadre of Psi-Powered samurai warriors in pursuit of an interstellar Drug gang. The author's fourth novel, A Roil of Stars (1991), was followed by a long silence until he returned to sf with Lion in the Sky (2019), featuring a huge Israeli Space Station as the key to that nation's escape from its perennial enemies.
