Edgar, Peter

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of Peter Edgar King-Scott (1918-1993), UK engineer, lecturer, management consultant and author of nonfiction works on industrial management [not listed below]. His birth name lacked the hyphen, which he legally added in 1943. Edgar's Near Future sf novel is Cities of the Dead (1963), in which radiation from nuclear testing in the Pacific has caused various creatures Under the Sea to attain unnaturally huge size (see Great and Small; Mutants). These Monsters duly trouble the western US seaboard; Scientists are sent to the rescue. [DRL/JC]
