COOK, Hugh (Murray William)
(1957-)
   NEW ZEALAND author, known primarily for his mildly competent and sometimes inventive fantasy series, Chronicles of an Age of Darkness, which seems intended for a young-adult readership. His only sf novel, The Shift (1986 UK), a finalist in the 1985 Young Writers' Competition run by The Times (London) with publishers Jonathan Cape, is a confused tale of deeply undergraduate humour about an alien INVASION and a machine that selectively alters human history.
