About the author (1991)

A novelist, biographer, and historian, John Calvin Batchelor was born in 1948. He has been described as "a skeptical neo-conservative's answer to Don DeLillo." Batchelor's novels encompass historical, speculative, and science fiction to express generally conservative ideas about society. For example, The Birth of the People's Republic of Antarctica (1983) is antiutopian science-fiction. Peter Nevsky and the True Story of the Russian Moon Landing (1993) is a speculative satire about a Russian moon landing predating that of the United States. Father's Day (1994) concerns an attempted coup d'etat of a disabled U.S. president. Gordon Liddy Is My Muse by Tommy "Tip" Paine (1995) is a combination of spy and science fiction. Batchelor's other works include Joseph Conrad: A Critical Biography (1993) and "Ain't You Glad You Joined the Republicans?" (1996), a history of the Republican Party. He has edited The Art of Literary Biography (1995).
