Nichols, Robert [2]

Tagged: Author

(1919-2010) US poet and author of the Daily Lives in Nghsi-Altai sequence describing in fictionalized terms a pacific, agricultural, myth-driven Utopia, beginning with Red Shift: An Introduction to Nghsi-Altai (1977) with Peter Schumann and ending with Exile: Book IV of Daily Lives in Nghsi-Altai (1978). From the Steam Room: A Satire of Global Perspective on the Financial Ruin of New York (1993) is a Near Future Satire set in a bankrupt New York; the tale is told in a tone of hallucinated dismay. It has been wrongly suggested that Nichols's full name is Robert Malise Bowyer Nichols Jr, and that he is the son of Robert Nichols (see above). [JC]
