BLUM, Ralph


BLUM, Ralph
(1932-)
   US writer involved in early drug research, which is reflected in his sf novel, The Simultaneous Man (1970). A convict's mind is erased and the memories and identity of a research scientist are substituted, rather as in Robert SILVERBERG's The Second Trip (1972). The relationship between the scientist and his "twin" is complex, and ends tragically for him in the USSR, where he himself becomes a subject for experimentation. Of borderline interest is Old Glory and the Real-Time Freaks (1972). The Book of Runes (1982) is nonfiction.
