POWE, Bruce
(1925-)
   Canadian writer whose sf novels concentrate on political disorders, a theme very common to post-WWII writers from his country. Killing Ground: The Canadian Civil War (1968), as Ellis Portal, sets itsfatal conflict in the NEAR FUTURE. The Last Days of the American Empire (1974) more far-rangingly sets its conflicts in the 21st century, when aNorth American hegemony is threated by both Europe and Africa.
