James P. Hogan (writer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"James Patrick Hogan (born June 27, 1941, London) is a science fiction author. Hogan's style of science fiction is sometimes considered hard science fiction; in his earlier work he conveyed a sense of what science and scientists were about. His philosophical view on how science should be done comes through in many of his novels; theories should be formulated based on empirical research, not the other way around. ..."

James P. Hogan - Libertarian
Advocates for Self-Government
"Mix together hard science, inventive plots, and a strong libertarian message, and what do you get? Libertarian science fiction writer James Patrick Hogan. ...

Writings

Electricity Powers the Universe, 30 Jul 2008
Presents the Electric Universe theory as a more plausible explanation than gravity and black holes
"... electrical theorists have developed an alternative paradigm for interpreting astronomical observations, based on principles that are well understood and can be demonstrated in any electrical or plasma laboratory. It requires none of the esoteric physics or ad-hoc inventions that the mainstream has had to resort to repeatedly when new observations failed to match expectations, or were never anticipated at all, and it is proving to be more powerful predictively.
