UK novelist known mainly for work outside the sf field whose first story of genre interest is The Prophet Mackenbee for Lucifer in 1952, about an sf writer and inventor who surrounds himself with disciples in an absurd world. His first book, I Hear Voices (1958 France). The Twilight of the Vilp (1969) is not so much sf proper as an informed and sophisticated playing with the conventions of the genre in a FABULATION about the author of a work and his relation to its components. The eponymous Galaxy-spanning Vilp cannot, therefore, be taken literally.
