(1930-1971) US writer who began to publish work of genre interest with "The Reluctant Weapon" for Galaxy in December 1952, and who published a number of tales over the next decade or so, usually as by Verge Foray; his only novel, Cloud Chamber (1977), attractively combines Cosmology, Antimatter invaders of our Universe, Sex and effortless rebirth of all sentient beings in a wide-ranging Space Opera that climaxes in its hero's arrival at Nirvana. His entire corpus was posthumously assembled in The Creatures of Man (coll 2003) and A Sense of Infinity (coll 2009). [JC]
