Seymour, Alan [2]

(1927-2015) Australian playwright, broadcaster and author, resident in the UK and elsewhere between 1961 and 1995. His sf novel, The Coming Self-Destruction of the United States of America (1969) – presented as a series of manuscripts found ages hence in the ruins of America (see Ruins and Futurity) and delivered back through time for contemporary readers – features a Black revolution that, though temporarily successful, precipitates an atomic Disaster.
