ANDERSON, William C(harles)
(1920-)
   USAF pilot and writer in various genres who published his first sf, The Valley of the Gods (1957) as Andy Anderson. Like his Pandemonium on the Potomac (1966), it features a father and daughter: in the former book they philosophize about the extinction of mankind; in the latter they act on their anxiety about Man's imminent self-destruction, blowing up a US city as a Dreadful Warning. Penelope (1963) and Adam M-1 (1964) are further sf comedies, the former concerned with a communicating porpoise - which appears also in Penelope, the Damp Detective (1974) - and the latter with an ANDROID, the first Astrodynamically Designed Aerospace Man. Other works: Five, Four, Three, Two, One - Pffff (1960); The Gooney Bird (1968); The Apoplectic Palm Tree (1969).
