''pseudonym used by US colour printer Carroll M Capps (1913-1971) in his writing career, which began - after illness forced his retirement - with ''A Pride of Islands'' in May 1960 for If, with which magazine (and its stablemates) he was chiefly associated for the balance of his short career. Much of his fiction concerns itself with Invasions by aliens, notably the Gree stories in If, running from ''Slaves of Gree'' (August 1964 If) to ''A Beachhead for Gree'' (February 1967 If). In general he wrote clearly and excitingly, and his range was still growing at the time of his death; the early truncation of his career was much regretted'' (John Clute & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
