Cook, Kenneth

Tagged: Author

(1929-1987) Australian author of Play Little Victims (1978 chap), a Satire depicting a world inherited by rational mice after 2000, who attempt to control mouse Overpopulation by literally applying texts left by an extinct humanity, on the apprehension that all human activities – including War, famine, genocide and the automobile – were introduced in order to reduce human population. The tale hovers (see Equipoise) between sf and fantasy. [JC]
