Pseudonym of UK author Thomas Willes Chitty (1926-2014), whose career as a novelist extends from 1952, when he was (not very plausibly) associated with the "Angry Young Men" (more a journalistic invention than a literary movement) which included Kingsley Amis and Colin Wilson. His work of sf interest, Daymare (1980), takes a Dystopian view of labour unrest and the distress caused by strikes to rural areas. [JC]
