ALLABY, Michael (John)
(1933-)
   UK writer. Most of his books are nonfiction studies in fields like ECOLOGY, but his The Greening of Mars (1984) with James (Ephraim) Lovelock (1919-), though basically a nonfiction study of how that planet might be settled, is told as a fictionalized narrative whose tone is upliftingly UTOPIAN.
