DICK-LAUDER, Sir George (Andrew)

DICK-LAUDER, Sir George (Andrew)
(1917-1981)
   British Army officer who began a writing career after his retirement from the service. His two sf novels, Our Man for Ganymede (1969) and A Skull and Two Crystals (1972), though not innovative, do explore the conventions of SPACE OPERA in a manner both literate and alert.
