Wingate, John

Tagged: Author

(1920-2008) UK naval officer and author, mostly on naval matters, none of whose work is fantastic with the exception of two volumes in the Young Adult Submariner Sinclair sequence: in Nuclear Captain (1962) and Sub-Zero (1963), Technothriller elements infiltrate normal Cold War manoeuvres with some element of the fantastic.
