Alan Nourse (w/Meyer):
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
Alan E. Nourse (1928-1992) was an American science fiction writer, as well as a physician. His works included sf for adults as well as the juvenile market; he also published non-fiction works about medicine and science. His novel The Bladerunner provided the name for Ridley Scott's movie version of Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

J.A. Meyer collaborated on several works with Nourse; other than that, I can't find anything online.
