SF short story collection.

''US writer and editor who ran a printing company with his wife before beginning to write in 1977. He soon published his first sf story, ''The Tryouts'' for Asimov's in November/December 1978. Before his 1981 hospitalization for alcoholism and addiction to prescription drugs - an experience which formed the basis of his non-sf novel Saint Mary Blue (1988) - he had already published prolifically, sometimes as by Frederick Longbeard. Most of the short fiction for which he remains best known was released early in his career, most notably the stories assembled in Manifest Destiny (1980), which explore a shared universe - in which a ruthlessly expanding Earth battles Dracon, an Alien Galactic Empire - with considerable intensity; and most of the contents of IT CAME FROM SCHENECTADY (1984)'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
