Walling, William

Tagged: Author

(1926-    ) US engineer and author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Rings on her Fingers" in F&SF for September 1970. In his first sf novel, No One Goes There Now (1971), a distorted human culture on a colony planet (see Colonization of Other Worlds) finds itself confronting Aliens who will not abide our games of violence. The World I Left Behind Me (1979) more lightheartedly describes a race to develop interstellar flight, complicated by more aliens and other impediments. He is not to be confused with William A Walling, an academic critic, one of whose books is referred to under Mary Shelley. [JC]
