Hunt, Walter H

Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) US computer programmer and author whose Dark Wing sequence of Military SF adventures – comprising The Dark Wing (2001), The Dark Path (2003), The Dark Ascent (2004) and The Dark Crusade (2005) – traverses an unusually long time-span from the first volume, featuring the dominating human admiral nicknamed the Black Wing who sacrifices himself to resolve the war between humanity and the Alien zor; later volumes carry the epic, with some attendant richness and confusions, onwards through the centuries. A central later protagonist, as wars and dilemmas proliferate, Admiral Barbara MacEwan, shows some welcome Hornblower in Space characteristics. [JC]
