Nighbert, David F

Tagged: Author

(1948-    ) US author who began publishing sf with his Stryker sequence – Timelapse (1988) and Clouds of Magellan (1991) – which engages its Cyborg protagonist first in a complicated Time-Paradox tale whose villain tricks him into falling in love with his own mother, and second in a traditional search for the long-gone Alien "Builders" responsible for an enormous artefact (see Macrostructures) called The Wheel. Strikezone (1989), which begins the Bull Cochrane sequence, again shows Nighbert's competence but also a disturbing tendency to rifle his genres for material without showing much concern for establishing a bailiwick of his own; further instalments in this series were entirely nonfantastic.
