Hill, Ernest

Tagged: Author

(1915-2003) UK author who began publishing sf with "The Last Generation" for New Worlds in January 1964, and who published some stories of interest, most notably the Dystopian "Atrophy" (in New Writings in SF #6, anth 1965, ed John Carnell). His novels – the rather desultory Space Opera Pity about Earth (1968 dos); The GC Radiation (1971), in which a few Americans and Russians survive a world Disaster; and The Quark Invasion (1978), the latter two being written for Robert Hale Limited – are of less interest.
