Tagged: Author

(1922-2002) German-born author, in US from 1948; linguistically fluent, he did military service with the French Army in World War Two, later serving as an interpreter for the British Army. Almost all of his work was nonfiction, much of it about skiing; he began publishing work of genre interest with an sf story, "The Mask", for Weird Tales in March 1952. His sf novel, The Peacemakers (1960), depicts conflicting societies in a virtually depopulated post-World War Three America; the dictator of one claustrophobic Keep must be killed to prevent his starting a further conflict.
