(1916-1985) UK journalist for newspapers – diplomatic correspondent for the Observer 1950-1955 – and television; served as press secretary for Sir Anthony Eden, but resigned in protest at the invasion of Egypt during the Suez crisis in 1956.

Page, Kathy

(1958-    ) UK author, in Canada from 2001, whose first novels – Back in the First Person (1986) and The Unborn Dreams of Clara Riley (1987) – are associational, though tinged with elements of literary fantasy.

An attractively produced magazine, each issue was a slim 30 pages or so and ...

Most if not all the Stockbridge stories in The Spider were by Norvell W Page; some were by Emile C Tepperman, Wayne Rogers and Prentice Winchell (1895-1976). It has been suggested that Frank Gruber and Reginald T Maitland also used this pseudonym. [PN/DRL] links / Internet Speculative Fiction Database Picture Gallery

Clute, John

This criticism, despite some studiously ...
