Tagged: Author

(1939-    ) New Zealand author, mostly of work for the Young Adult market; his second novel, The Return (1987), is of sf interest for its depiction of the effects on an isolated New Zealand village of the Mysterious-Stranger-like visit of a young man whose nature and goals are obscure, but whose powers of Telepathy threaten to reveal the true nature of the world he has invaded.
