Cormier, Robert

Tagged: Author

(1925-2000) US author, highly esteemed for his Young Adult novels, especially perhaps The Chocolate War (1974), which is not fantastic. Of sf interest are The Bumblebee Flies Anyway (1983), which depicts the experiences of a child being experimented upon in a hospital called only the Complex; and Fade (1988), a tale of inherited Invisibility hovers Equipoisally between fantasy and sf whose protagonist gains markedly but suffers greatly through his alienating power.
