Miller, Warren

Tagged: Author

(1921-1966) US author, who wrote romantic novels as by Amanda Vail, married to Jimmy Miller; he remains best known for his first Harlem novel, The Cool World (1959). Looking for the General (1964) is a combination of Fabulation and quest, and some of its devices belong to sf. Miller's sf novel proper, The Siege of Harlem (1964), is a Near-Future tale in which Harlem (northern Manhattan) (see New York) declares itself a separate state. His heavily-illustrated tales for younger children are attractive; they contain no sf elements. [JC]
