Pseudonym of Noel Boston (1910-1966), and not, as has often been thought, of his friend R L Fanthorpe. Bertram privately published some supernatural stories as Yesterday Knocks (coll 1953; exp 2003 as Boston); his ten tales 1960-1962 in Supernatural Stories, the Badger Books magazine whose contents were mostly written by Fanthorpe, have been verified. [SH/DRL]

  • Yesterday Knocks (privately printed, 1953) [coll: binding unknown/]
    • Yesterday Knocks (Ashcroft, British Columbia: Ash-Tree Press, 2003) as by Noel Boston [exp of the above with six further Supernatural Stories tales: with new introduction, "An Appreciation of Canon Noel Boston", by Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe: hb/Paul Lowe]
