MORGAN, Dan


MORGAN, Dan
(1925-)
   UK writer and professional guitarist, about which instrument he wrote 2 successful manuals, Guitar (1965) and Spanish Guitar (1982). He began publishing sf with "Alien Analysis" for NW in 1952. His first sf novels, Cee-Tee Man (1955) and The Uninhibited (1957 NW; 1961), were routine adventures, but The Richest Corpse in Show Business (1966) stood out for its slapstick guying of sf conventions. He published the Venturer Twelve SPACE-OPERA series - A Thunder of Stars (1968), Seed of Stars (1972US) and The Neutral Stars (1973 US) all with John KIPPAX - and the much more interesting Sixth Perception series: The New Minds (1967), The Several Minds (1969), The Mind Trap (1970 US) and The Country of the Mind(1975). In this latter series, which contains his most effective work, a band of people linked by their PSI POWERS solve problems, often in opposition to the world at large. Though not a powerful writer by any means, and though he has never transcended the US action-tale conventions to which he is so clearly indebted, it is all the same surprising that DM is so ignored.
