Bernau, George

(1945-2005) US lawyer and author of three Alternate-History thrillers: in Promises to Keep (1988) a figure based on John F Kennedy recovers from the attempt to assassinate him; in Candle in the Wind (1990) Marilyn Monroe survives her semi-accidental overdose; and in Black Phoenix (1994), Germany acquires, at the end of World War Two, a super weapon that threatens to create a modification of the Hitler Wins scenario, though in this case it is Joseph Goebbels who, having faked his death, continues the war from secret bases abroad.
