Bailey, Paul

Tagged: Author

(1906-1987) US osteopath, publisher, editor and author of novels and nonfiction set in the American West, often on Mormon themes, though his relationship with the authorities governing that religion cooled after he wrote For Time and All Eternity (1964) about the ticklish issue of polygamy; his sf novel, Deliver Me from Eva (1946), deals with the complications ensuing from the hero's osteopath father-in-law's capacity (though legless he is very powerful) to increase Intelligence artificially through cranial manipulation. Horrors ensue. [JC]
