Kooistra, Jeffery D

Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Love, Dad" for Analog in March 1992, and has been one of the two contributors to the The Alternate View column for the same magazine since 1998. His fiction is usually describable as clear-headed Hard SF; his first novel, Dykstra's War (fixup 2000), focuses on a traditional protagonist – the eponymous Scientist-inventor (see Invention) whose discoveries in Physics have dominated the twenty-first-century and who must at the age of 126 save the solar system – and traditional adversaries, intricately conceived Aliens with dreadful Weapons that must somehow be disabled.
