(1928- ) Hungarian-born author, who may have changed or modified his name after coming to the UK in 1957. He began publishing sf with "The Craving for Blackness" in New Worlds for September 1962, set in a world where only women can go into space. His sf novels, bleak but otherwise unexceptional, are No Stars for Us (1964), The Seedy (1969) – whose titular protagonist is a fertile exception to near-universal sterility caused by a planetary Disaster, in this case atmospheric nuclear testing – and Metamorphosis (1976).
This author should not be confused with Robert Ray, a pseudonym used by Al Bernstein for a single story in 1950. [JC/DRL]
