Tagged: Author

(1934-    ) US author, in UK from the 1950s, mostly of historical novels, initially for Young Adult readers, later for adult audiences. Of sf interest is The Vandal (1979), an early example of the Dystopia whose adolescent protagonist is banned from a central oppressive City, in this case a culture where enforced Amnesia intensifies the tyranny. The protagonist's act of vandalism opens his eyes to the true world. [JC]
