Cobb, James H

Tagged: Author

(1953-2014) US author in whose Technothriller, Choosers of the Slain (1996), a stealth destroyer full of Inventions, and captained by a woman Commander perhaps supernaturally attuned to her ship, is pitted against an Argentinian attempt to claim the whole of Antarctica; further novels in the Amanda Garrett sequence hover within the same quasi-sf environment. The sf singleton Cibola (2004), set in the twenty-second century, features a paramilitary operation to bring a valuable Asteroid into orbit around Earth. [JC]
