DeWEESE, Gene


DeWEESE, Gene
   Working name of US technical writer and author Thomas Eugene DeWeese (1934-), who began writing sf with two Man from U.N.C.L.E. ties, The Invisibility Affair * (1967) and The Mind-Twisters Affair * (1967), both with Robert COULSON and signed, collaboratively, Thomas Stratton. Other novels with Coulson, both authors now signing their own names, include a routine sf adventure for LASER BOOKS, Gates of the Universe (1975 Canada; rev vt Nightmare Universe 1985 US) and two spoof RECURSIVE novels about reporter Joe Karns, who gets into all kinds of trouble at sf CONVENTIONS; the large number of in-group references made it unlikely that either Now You See It/Him/Them (1975) and Charles Fort Never Mentioned Wombats (1977) would gain many readers outside the genre. In the 1980s, GDW concentrated on lively juveniles (see listing below) and on several equally lively Star Trek ties: for STAR TREK itself, Chain of Attack * (1987), its direct sequel The Final Nexus * (1988), and Renegade * (1991); and, for STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, The Peacekeepers * (1988).
