UK psychologist and computer scientist (1931-1979) - not to be confused with the sf writer of the same name. Posthumously published non-fiction book, edited and completed by Peter Evans.

''(1931-1979) UK psychologist and computer scientist perhaps best known for his nonfiction books Cults of Unreason (1973) - a witty and surprisingly sympathetic study of various aspects of pseudoscience, in particular UFO cults and Scientology - and The Mighty Micro: The Impact of the Computer Revolution (1979). His enthusiasm for sf brought him into contact with the field at several points; he was billed as science editor of New Worlds 1967-1969 and gave talks at some 1970s UK Conventions. ''The Dreams of the Computer'' (May 1969 New Worlds) suggested a highly speculative model for human dreaming in terms of Computer program overload. He was a technical consultant for The Tomorrow People and a contributing editor of Omni. His anthologies Mind at Bay (1969) and Mind in Chains (1970) interestingly explore the borderlands between sf and psychological Horror - J G Ballard and John Sladek appear in both'' (David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
