Mayer, Bob

Tagged: Author

(1959-    ) US soldier and author who has published military novels under his own name, often utilizing his experiences as a Green Beret, and whose works of sf interest have been published under two pseudonyms, Robert Doherty and Greg Donegan. As Doherty – after The Rock (1996), a Time Travel thriller set at Ayers Rock in the Australian outback – he published the Area 51 sequence of thrillers, beginning with Area 51 (1997), which play on Paranoia in general and the Area 51/UFOs mythos in particular, in a fashion that evokes the X-Files universe, though the sequence focuses specifically on an ancient Spaceship found in Antarctica. Also as Doherty he published the Psychic Warrior sequence of Military SF tales featuring a unit of soldiers with Psi Powers, beginning with Psychic Warrior (2000). As Donegan, he published the Atlantis series, beginning with Atlantis (1999), in which the Aliens who destroyed the original Atlantis now occupy the Bermuda Triangle, from which they threaten the world. He should not be confused with Robert Mayer. [JC]
