McLAUGHLIN, Dean (Benjamin Jr)


McLAUGHLIN, Dean (Benjamin Jr)
(1931-)
   US writer who began publishing sf with "For Those who Follow After" for ASF in 1951. Of his three sf novels - Dome World (1958 ASF; exp 1962), The Fury from Earth (1963) and The Man who Wanted Stars (fixup 1965) - the last is probably the best, though all of these straightforward adventures are densely written. The first is set UNDER THE SEA, the second describes a war between Earth and a liberated VENUS, and the third depicts one man's long, driven quest to force and trick Earth governments into attaining interstellar SPACE FLIGHT. Hawk Among the Sparrows (coll 1976) assembles stories of the 1960s. DM's subject matter and style were fairly typical of those encouraged by John W. CAMPBELL Jr during his editorial domination of ASF.
