HOSKINS, Robert


HOSKINS, Robert
(1933-)
   US writer and editor. RH began publishing sf with "Feet of Clay" for If in 1958 as by Phillip Hoskins. He worked as a literary agent 1967-8, and served as senior editor with Lancer Books 1969-1972. His firstpublished novel, Evil in the Family (1972) as by Grace Corren, is a TIME-TRAVEL fantasy. The Shattered People (1975) is FAR-FUTURE sf, pittinga primitive culture against a technological civilization which has been exploiting it. The Stars sequence - Master of the Stars (1976 Canada), To Control the Stars (1977) and To Escape the Stars (1978) - is based looselyon RH's "The Problem Makers" (1963), and describes a cluster of galactic civilizations, connected by a system of ancient stargates, over a period of eons. Legacy of the Stars (1979) as by John Gregory is an sf adventure unconnected to the sequence. RH's books make no claims to be anything more than entertaining action adventures.As an anthologist, RH is of primary importance as editor of the INFINITY series of original anthologies: Infinity \#1 (anth 1970), \#2 (anth 1971), \#3 (anth 1972), \#4 (anth 1972)and \#5 (anth 1973).
