Tagged: Author

Working name of Russian-born author Martha Edith von Almedingen (1898-1971), who emigrated to the UK in 1923. Of her children's fictions, which made up about half her total works, several are of fantasy interest. Her only title of clear sf import is Stand Fast, Beloved City (1954), about a Dystopian tyranny.
