Vernon, Roger Lee

Tagged: Author

(1924-2017) US schoolteacher and author whose awkwardly routine early sf is contained in an assemblage of original stories, The Space Frontiers (coll 1955), which are mostly Space Opera tales of interplanetary warfare; and the novel Robot Hunt (1959) (see Robots). The very much more recent The Fall of the American Empire – 2013: A Remembrance of Things Future (2010) is told from the year 2035, two decades after the successful Invasion of America by an extremist Islamic state armed by Russia with nuclear weapons, leaving the outcome of World War Three in no doubt.
