Born in 1934 in Oxfordshire. Served in the RAF. He wrote his books in the 1960s and 70s. He predicted the internet, social media, VIAGRA,Grin, and an ecological crisis facing the world.
His book ' Stand on Zanzibar' - set in 2010, it imagines a world with a vast social network; the Soviet Union has been replaced by China as the chief threat to U.S. power. and the most powerful man in the world in President Obomi. [That makes one think.]
He also forecast self-scheduled TV, equivalent to Netflix ??;terrorism big threat;and gay and bisexual lifestyles would become normal.
Who has heard of him and also read his books ? Never knew about him until yesterday. Now today, searching on the web and trying to access his predictions, cannot get through - is it the end of the world.???

For accurate predictions of the future try H G Wells.

Well whoever instigates the end of the world they'll never go down in history so self engrandisement is a bit futile. Just musing.
