Tagged: Author

Working name of Sidney Hobson Courtier (1904-1974), Australian school-teacher and author who principally wrote crime fiction, often with Australian bush settings and Aboriginal characters. His two sf thrillers for Robert Hale Limited are Into the Silence (1973), in which silence engulfs the Earth and the loss of spoken-word Communication brings chaos; and The Smiling Trip (1975), where a contemporary epidemic of mysterious unconsciousness and insanity proves to be the first sign of a conspiracy whose ultimate aim is domination of the world.
