(?   -    ) Zimbabwean author, some of whose work is of sf interest. Hawks of Peace (1979) depicts an independent Near Future Zimbabwe from Armstrong's white settler perspective: devastation and violence accompany the installation of black rule. In Cataclysm (1980), also set in the Near Future, the world after decades of Ecological degradation and Pollution suffers a catastrophic rise in ocean levels due to melting ice and other Disasters (see Climate Change); some of the more dramatic scenes of flooding are set in Manhattan (see New York).
