Moore, Robin

Tagged: Author

Working name of US author Robert Lowell Moore Jr (1925-2008), perhaps best-known for The Green Berets (1965), and most of whose works of sf interest were Technothrillers, usually with a Cold War background, as in The Chinese Ultimatum (1976) with Edward McGhee, where a 1980s non-nuclear war between China and the USSR ultimately regionalizes a non-participant America. Other works of similar purport include The Death Disciple (1977) and The Last Coming (1978), both with Gerald G Griffin, and The Trinity Implosion (1978) with Lewis Perdue. [JC]
