MASON, David
(1924-1974)
   US writer who began publishing with "Placebo" for Infinity in 1955; he was married 1956-62 to Katherine MACLEAN. Most of his novels - such as his first, Kavin's World (1969), and its sequel, The Return of Kavin (1972) - were routine SWORD AND SORCERY. However, his final book,The Deep Gods (1973), more impressively implants a 20th-century mentality into the brain of a prehistoric man who must deal with the insanity of a whale (one of the "deep gods" of the title) that threatens to destroy Eden.
