White, Alan

Tagged: Author

(1924-    ) UK author, almost exclusively of thrillers, often in a war setting, his best known novel probably being A Long Day's Dying (1962); his pseudonyms have been used only for nonfantastic works. Of sf interest is Black Alert (1985), a Near Future Technothriller in which a renegade soldier, who has gained control of a military Spaceship, attempts to instigate World War Three by bombing London.
