WILSON, Snoo
(1948-)
   UK playwright and novelist whose sf novels Spaceache (1984) and Inside Babel (1985) comprise a short series of SATIRES whose targets are contemporary politics and culture. Unfortunately, his use of sf instruments is significantly less than competent - most notably, his attempt to make fun of SPACE OPERA founders on his manifest ignorance of its conventions and, indeed, of the scientific rationales underpinning them.
