Of sf interest, all written with Johnson, are An Alien Music (1982); The Danger Quotient (1984), set initially in a Ruined Earth 130 years after World War Three had ended in nuclear Holocaust, and moving with its protagonist via Time Machine back to the twentieth century and to the Underground redoubt where civilization would survive the Holocaust; Prisoner of PSI (1985), a Near Future tale whose young protagonist, though in possession of psychic powers, is kidnapped by Libyan terrorists; and A Memory of Dragons (1986), whose protagonist, suffering from Amnesia, plays a role in a Near Future conflict. I Am Leaper (1990) was written solo for younger readers. [JC]
