Championing the cause of children's science fiction. As the author of more than 70 science fiction and fantasy books for children and young adults, Douglas Hill, who has died aged 72 after being knocked down on a London zebra crossing, made a significant contribution to the development of the genre over 40 years. While he began as an adult author, he latterly wrote for children - "unashamedly", as he said, and with a strong sense of purpose, seeing himself not as a writer of great literature but as someone who would get children excited about reading.
Finn is captures and enslaved within the mighty walls of the alien Citadel, the Slavers' mountain fortress. Relying on nothing more than his uncanny wilderness instincts, he eventually escapes only to learn the devastating truth about the Slavers and their final plans for Earth and its people.
It captivated me then and now.
