Enguídanos Usach, Pascual

Entry updated 24 December 2020. Tagged: Author.

(1923-2006) Spanish author, better known by his pseudonym George H White; one of the deans of Spanish sf. He wrote hundreds of Pulp-style novellas: sf, crime, war and westerns for the Editorial Valenciana publishing house and later for the giant Bruguera. Between 1953 and 1978, he published 96 sf novellas and a handful of short stories as by George H White or Van S Smith.

Enguídanos Usach was the author of the most important series of Space Opera novels in Spain: La Saga de los Aznar ["The Aznar Saga"] beginning with Los hombres de Venus ["Men from Venus"] (1953) as by George H White, the pseudonym he used throughout. From 1953 to 1958 appeared the first 32 novellas in the Luchadores del Espacio ["Space Fighters"] sub-sequence, which formed the central core of the saga; in the 1970s, this was rewritten and expanded to 54 novellas, and still frequently reprinted and continued as fan fiction (see Fandom); it had two Comics adaptations. The plot follows the adventures of a family of Spanish heroes across the galaxy, first fleeing an Alien Invasion on Earth and then conquering other worlds. Its aesthetics are reminiscent of Flash Gordon. In 1978 at Eurocon in Brussels, it received the award for the best European sf series, ahead of other works such as the German series Perry Rhodan.

Pascual Enguídanos was the Guest of Honour at several HispaCons. In 2003 he was honoured with the Gabriel Award by the Spanish Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror Association. [MV]
