CRANE, Robert


CRANE, Robert
   Pseudonym of Bernard Glemser (1908-1990), UK novelist who worked for his government in the USA after WWII, remaining there after his resignation. Under his own name he wrote several non-genre novels, at least two of which feature a protagonist named Robert Crane. As RC he began to write sf with "The Purple Fields" in 1953, but is best remembered for Hero's Walk (1954) - the basis for a tv play, "The Voices" (1954) - an intelligent and realistically conceived tale in which superior ALIENS quarantine a militaristic Earth and eventually bomb it to rubble. There is some hope at the novel's close that humanity will be permitted to survive and mature.
