Whiteside, Thomas

Tagged: Author

(1918-1997) UK-born journalist and author, in USA most of his life; most of his work, like The Tunnel Under the Channel (1972), is nonfiction, much of it focused on Ecological issues. He is of sf interest for the Near Future Alone Through the Dark Sea (1964), in which three narratives interweave, each based on isolation: a sea captain whose ship is sinking; the inhabitants of a virtually unknown Island; and the pilot of a Spaceship en route to a new planet.
