CONWAY, Gerard F.
(1952-)
   US writer who began publishing sf with "Through the Dark Glass" for AMZ in 1970. His first sf novel was The Midnight Dancers (1971). Mindship (1971 Universe; exp 1974) is a SPACE OPERA: the mindships of the title are spaceships coordinated by the PSI POWERS of specially trained "corks". Not untypically of sf novels of the time, by the end of the book a gestalt state has been achieved between one cork and his captain. As Wallace Moore, GFC wrote the Balzan of the Cat People series: The Bloodstone (1974), The Caves of Madness (1975) and The Lights of Zetar (1975).
