WILLIAMS, Nick (van) Boddie


WILLIAMS, Nick (van) Boddie
(1906-1992)
   US newspaperman - he was with the Los Angeles Times 1931-71, serving as its chief editor from 1958 - and writer who contributed short material to various "slicks"; he reported having published his first sf story pseudonymously in Weird Tales in the late 1920s, but could recall neither title nor pseudonym. The Atom Curtain (1956 dos) is set in a thoroughly unusual post- HOLOCAUST USA 170 years after an atomic barrier has isolated it from the rest of the world. Inside, a crazed immortal rules a population rapidly reverting to Neanderthal status, and a cave woman, after being clubbed, falls in love with the barrier-penetrating protagonist.
