(1945-    ) Australian lawyer, author of much nonfiction from a conservative point of view, the third son of Sir Hal Colebatch (1872-1953), Australian politician; his career as an author of fiction has been restricted to the contribution of various Ties to Larry Niven's Man-Kzin Wars Shared World enterprise, beginning with "The Colonels' Tiger" in Man-Kzin Wars VII (anth 1995) edited by Larry Niven. Most prominently, several subsequent tales focusing on the shattered but liberated planet of Wunderland, formerly a Kzin colony, were assembled as Man-Kzin Wars X: The Wunder War (coll 2003), including the novel-length "One War for Wunderland". He also contributed most of the contents of Man-Kzin Wars XI (anth 2005) edited with Larry Niven, Paul Chafe and Matthew Joseph Harrington; and was an editor, with the same co-editors, of Man-Kzin Wars XII (anth 2009).
