- CRAMER, John G(leason)
- (1934-)US experimental physicist (Professor of Physics at the University of Washington) and writer; father of Kathryn CRAMER; author of the Alternate View series of science articles in ASF from the 1980s onwards. His HARD-SF novel, Twistor(1989), engagingly describes the eponymous invention, which sends folk into other DIMENSIONS, where they find copious supplies of food, while a villainous corporation attempts - in the end unsuccessfully - to corner the device for its own ends. As the novel closes, several new and virgin worlds stand at the brink of being used by humans.JC
