US Small Press magazine that paid a sufficiently high wordage rate to be classified as professional, though it did not have a wide circulation. It was published by Edgewood Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, edited by Steve Pasechnick and saw only three undated issues, published in 2003, 2004 and 2006. Published in review-size format, 88 pages, and comparatively expensive at $7, beautifully designed by Bryan Cholfin but with no internal illustrations, it had all the appearance of an elitist ...

Worth, Nigel

Pseudonym of UK navy officer and author Noel Wright (1890-1975), who reached flag rank in the Royal Navy during World War Two, and who is of sf interest for The Arms of Phaedra: A Tale of Wonder and Adventure (1924), a Lost Race tale set in Crete, where ancient Minoans are found to have survived. The Wise Man of Welby (1924) is an adventure tale with fantasy elements. Under his own name, Wright wrote nonfiction, mostly about naval matters. [JC]

King, John Robert

(1948-    ) UK author whose Bruno Lipshitz and the Disciples of Dogma (1976) rather uneasily juggles a number of ingredients in a complex plot: an Alien invasion, a strange Religion, interpersonal conflicts and dollops of adventure. [JC]

Robinson, Roger

(1943-    ) UK computer programmer, bibliographer and publisher, active in UK Fandom for many years. The Writings of Henry Kenneth Bulmer (1983 chap; rev 1984 chap) is an exhaustive Bibliography of one of the most prolific sf writers, and Who's Hugh?: An SF Reader's Guide to Pseudonyms (1987) is similarly exhaustive in its listing of Pseudonyms. Criticized at first for its failure to annotate its findings – so that, for instance, pseudonyms used for sf could not be ...
