Pereira, W D

Tagged: Author

(1921-    ) UK aviation engineer, advertising executive and author whose first books, beginning with Time of Departure (1956), concentrated on flying. He began writing sf with Aftermath 15 (1973), which depicts a Dystopian Post-Holocaust America whose inhabitants are rigidly stratified according to how much radiation they have absorbed. The projected sequels, «Aftermath 16» and «Aftermath 17», have never appeared. Pereira's other novels, all written for Robert Hale Limited in a professionally impersonal style, were The Charon Tapes (1975), Another Eden (1976), Contact (1977), The King of Hell (1978) and Celeste (1979).
