(1927-2011) US novelist and screenwriter, active in the latter capacity with scripts like "Angels' Flight" (1962). Some of his work dealt with current investigations into parapsychology (see Psi Powers), and his filmscript on this subject was novelized by Louis Charbonneau as The Sensitives (1968). Romano's own sf novel, Flight from Time One (1972), also treated parapsychology, this time in the didactic tale of an elite squad of "astralnauts" whose members take on missions in their astral bodies, enjoying a deep camaraderie as they fly.
