St George, David

Tagged: Author

Joint pseudonym of UK author David Phillips (?   -    ) and Bulgarian engineer and author Georgi Markov, the latter in the UK from about 1971; his assassination in London at the hands of Bulgarian agents was admitted only in 1990 after the old government fell. In their spoofish Near Future Satire, The Right Honourable Chimpanzee (1978), a crisis-ridden UK elects an ape as prime minister (see Apes as Human). [JC]
