Tagged: Author

(1906-1982) Austrian author almost all of whose 30 or so books – many of them written for children, many of them sf – remain untranslated. In Nur zwei Roboter? (1963; trans Frances Lobb as The Hour of the Robots 1964), Russian agents steal advanced Robot designs from America; fortunately, once the robots (named William and Natasha) are built, their mutual affection causes the world to look to peace.
