HANLEY, James


HANLEY, James
(1901-1985)
   Irish writer, in the UK from around the time he began - with Drift (1930) - to publish his many novels and collections. His only sf, What Farrar Saw (1946; rev as coll, vt What Farrar Saw and Other Stories 1984), set in a NEAR FUTURE land much like war-depleted England, presents a country choked by both an invidious class system and huge traffic jams, which serve as a metaphor for social sclerosis. The jams are cleared with bombs, but the system seems intact.
