Norwood, Victor

Tagged: Author

(1920-1983) UK traveller and author who concentrated on Westerns and nonfiction works about exploration. Of some genre interest is the Jacaré the Untamed series of South American jungle adventure tales, loosely derived from Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan and mostly sf or fantasy: The Untamed (1951), The Caves of Death (1951), The Temple of the Dead (1951), The Skull of Kanaima (1951), The Island of Creeping Death (1952), and Cry of the Beast (1953); Drums along the Amazon (1953) is associational and not part of this series. Night of the Black Horror (1962) is a singleton sf adventure for Badger Books. Among Norwood's other titles is the to some extent pornographic Island of the Voodoo Dolls (1969) as by Paul Dangerfield. [JC/SH]
