(1933-    ) UK author of Young Adult novels, of which several are of sf interest. The Leven sequence – comprising Ransome Revisited (1975; vt Out There 1975) and The Ruston Inheritance (1978) – is set in a depopulated Ruined-Earth UK, initially in an isolated dictatorial enclave in the UK, from which the young protagonists escape; the second volume, set in the same world, begins a process of recovery of the past. The Freedom Cage (1980) follows its protagonist into an isolated mountain village which may be a Zoo – or research station – run by Aliens; in Under Siege (1988), the characters in a Computer game (see Games and Sports) come to life.
