Hoobler, Thomas

(1942-    ) US author, mostly nonfiction in collaboration with his wife, Dorothy Hoobler. Of sf interest is the Hunters sequence comprising The Hunters (1978) with Burt Wetanson and The Treasure Hunters (1983) with Burt Wetanson, featuring a race of Aliens who use Earth as an arena for staged (but not unfair) combats between them and humans (see Games and Sports); Dr Chill's Project (1987; vt Dr Chill 1989), an sf juvenile involving Psi Powers and the kindly Dr Chill, who helps his charges survive their schooling; and In Darkness, Death (2004) with Dorothy Hoobler, a Japanese detection with marginal fantasy elements. The Monsters: Mary Shelley & the Curse of Frankenstein (2006) with Dorothy Hoobler is an alert study. [JC]
