Onopa, Robert

(1943-    ) US academic and author of The Pleasure Tube (1979), a tale in which an astronaut returns from space to a hallucinatory America and becomes entrapped, in the narrative present tense, in a Sex machine; Barry N Malzberg's influence seems clear. Onopa continues to publish sf short stories, the later ones told with sharp-tongued gonzo Equipoise. [JC]
