(1947- ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "The Steel Works" in Asimov's for Summer 1977. His sf novel, The Steel Eye (1984), somewhat uneasily combines sf and mystery genres, and features a Robot detective. The Gilded Basilisk (2014) and the Einar sequence opening with Einar and the Cursed City (2014) are fantasy, the latter for Young Adult readers; Into the Horsebutt Nebula (2016) is humorous sf.
