BENNETT, Margot


BENNETT, Margot
(1912-1980)
   UK writer, from 1945 mostly of detective novels, in a subtle and atmospheric style. A fantasy story, "An Old-Fashioned Poker for My Uncle's Head" (1946), was reprinted in FSF in 1954. Her first sf novel, The Long Way Back (1954), has become well known. Long after a 1984 nuclear HOLOCAUST has ended European civilization, a reindustrialized and regimented African state sends a colonizing expedition to legendary Great Britain, where they find White people living in caves. The denouement uneasily combines love interests, satire and adventure.
