Tagged: Author

(1903-1992) US reporter and author in various genres, active from as early as 1934 with "Their Forefathers Were Presidents" for Story, though his first work of genre interest, "Operation Survival" for New Worlds, did not appear until December 1962. Most of his early novels are set on farms in the US Middle West; the title of one of them, Acres of Antaeus (1946), deceptively suggests sf content; The Little Jeep (1946 chap) is a short fantasy about a wartime jeep retiring to a farm, where life is quieter. His sf novel, The Planet of the Blind (1968), written for Robert Hale Limited, is a variation on the theme of the one-eyed man in the country of the blind inaugurated (for sf) by H G Wells in The Country of the Blind (April 1904 Strand; 1915 chap US; rev plus original text 1939 chap).
