Tagged: Author

(1927-2007) US author who specialized during his brief career in the Planetary Romance: Cabu (1974) translates a man to a violent new life on the planet Cabu, where he uses his knowledge of human Technology and history to change the world for the better, but instead creates fatal dissensions and War; SAR (1974) similarly takes a saddened view of barbarian life in Space Opera contexts; the planet featured in Ta (1975) boasts sentient plants.
