ANDERSON, William C(harles)
   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).
