Stasi moved to hold famous author (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

asimov

Here is my best explanation:

'famous author' is the definition.

(Isaac Asimov)

'stasi moved to hold' is the subsidiary indication.

'to hold' says the answer is hidden in the clue.

'asimov' is hidden within 'stasi moved'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for asimov that I've seen before include "Sci-fi writer", "novelist", "Isaac -, US sci-fi writer", "He wrote about robots", "Isaac ---, SF author", "Writer", "See 22 Down", "Isaac - - , SF writer", "Isaac --, sci-fi author" and "Sci-fi author".)
