(1946-    ) US author best known for anguished accounts of the Vietnam War, including the novel Going After Cacciato (1978); of sf interest is The Nuclear Age (1985), set in a Near Future America in 1995 anxiety-ridden by anticipations of nuclear war. The protagonist, an ex-paramilitary radical now middle-aged, goes to ground, where he digs a useless bomb shelter against the coming Holocaust. [JC]
