Greenfield, Irving A

(1928-2020) US academic, playwright and author prolific in various genres; he was first active as an author of pornography, sometimes as by Vin Fields, but later concentrated on expansive historical fantasies. The Waters of Death (1967), Succubus: A Novel of Erotic Possession (1970; vt Succubus 1970 as by Campo Verde) and The Stars Will Judge (1974; vt Star Trial 1977) apply a lush and highly readable psychologizing style to routine sf matters. The Depth Force sequence, beginning with Depth Force (1984), is borderline Military SF in a variety of nautical settings. As Bruce Duncan, Greenfield wrote Mirror Image (1968 chap dos), a minor work.
