COHEN, Barney
(? -)
   US writer whose first novel of genre interest was The Night of the Toy Dragons (1977). His The Taking of Satcon Station (1982) with Jim BAEN is an engagingly over-the-top application of private-eye idioms and plots (Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon [1930] being much in evidence) to the NEAR FUTURE and near space, the eponymous satellite being the focus for the climax. Blood on the Moon (1984) is similar but grimmer.
