Alfred Elton van Vogt (1912-2000) received recognition as a Canadian science fiction book writer. He used a peculiar writing style influenced by many science fiction writers, for example, Philip K. Dick. Slan (1946) became his first completed novel. Van Vogt also finished a book named The Violent Man (1962) set in Communist China. He developed a particular interest in totalitarian states that reached popularity after World War II. Few years before his death Vogt sued a production company who seemed to commit plagiarism. This happened after Vogt realised the Alien film (1979) viewed similar to one of his narratives named Voyage of the Space Beagle.
