BURKETT, William Ray Jr


BURKETT, William Ray Jr
(1943-)
   US author and journalist. His only published sf work, Sleeping Planet (1964 ASF; 1965), very competently tells a hard-edged tale of conflict between the small Terran Federation and the huge Llralan Empire. The Llralans, having undeserved access to a toxic dust, spray the Earth, putting all but a few humans to sleep (INVASION); in the best ASF manner - the book's resemblance to the work of Eric Frank RUSSELL is striking - they are ultimately sent packing.
