WURLITZER, Rudolf


WURLITZER, Rudolf
(1937-)
   US novelist and screenwriter, most of whose tales may be read as FABULATIONS in which sf elements are bleakly pickled. Nog (1969; vt The Octopus UK), Flats (1970) and Quake (1972) share an apocalyptic mise en scene similar in feeling to, but not clearly identified as being, the post- HOLOCAUST world so familiar to sf readers. Slow Fade (1984) verges on similar territory.
