Gamebuster was an excellent novel composed by the wonderful husband-wife team of Edgar and Annabel Johnson. However, they still have some kinks to work out in this book, too bad it's already been written.

About the author (1990)

Johnson is one of the preeminent biographers of the twentieth century; his industriousness and thoroughness place him in the tradition of the multivolume writers of the nineteenth century who were his subjects. He began research for a biography on Sir Walter Scott in 1956, started writing in 1961, and ended up at the end of the decade with a manuscript of 500,000 words in 78 chapters. Sir Walter Scott: The Great Unknown (1970) was awarded the American Heritage biography prize in 1969, at $20,000 considered the largest award in the U.S. for a literary work. Some critics preferred Johnson's biography to Scott's works; all agreed that it was a definitive account of a major author. Johnson is notable, also, as the biographer of Charles Dickens.
