Frezza, Robert A,

US author who began publishing sf with “Max Weber’s War” for Amazing, January 1987. The Small Colonial War sequence – comprising A Small Colonial War (1990), Fire in a Faraway Place (1994) and Cain’s Land (1996) – replays the Boer War on a colony planet dominated by a Japanese-run interstellar empire, though without Kaffirs. The Imperial Japanese military forces, predictably, find the transplanted Post-Holocaust Afrikaners tough meat. McLendon’s Syndrome (1994) and its sequel, The VMR Theory (1996), are comic Space Operas featuring a pair of lovers afflicted with the titular Syndrome of the first title, which gives them allergies – sunlight, for instance – and also advantages replicating the conventions of supernatural fiction about Vampires. At the behest of the human-run interstellar Naval Intelligence, they run a scam in space by posing as members of a master race on a gullible planet.
