Block, Thomas H.


(1945- …) US airline pilot and writer who has written at least some of his aviation-based Technothrillers with Nelson DeMille as anonymous contributor, though the collaboration becomes explicit in the revised version of his first book, Mayday (1979; rev 1997 as by Thomas Block and Nelson DeMille). His tales all hover at the edge of genuine sf; of these, two are of particular interest: the Near-Future Orbit (1982), in which a 3900mph (6275kph) airliner is gimmicked by saboteurs into flying into orbit; and Airship Nine (1984), a full-fledged Post-Holocaust tale, with soldiers in Antarctica fending off Nuclear Winter and preparing to repopulate the planet.
