''Canadian teacher and writer who began publishing work of genre interest with ''Of Children in the Foliage''; the story was gathered with further lean and subtle tales in The Woman who is the Midnight Wind (coll 1987). In his short fiction Green, like many Canadian writers, tenders a vision which might be called melancholy humanism. His first novel, BARKING DOGS (1988 US), on the other hand, opens that vision out but, to do so, forcibly transforms Toronto into a mean-streets venue suitable for displays of high-tech weaponry displays by a vengeful cop. In Children of the Rainbow (1992) a descendant of the Bounty mutineers undergoes time-travel stress and imprisonment'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
