Frankau, Pamela

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1908-1967) UK author who began publishing novels in 1927; daughter of Gilbert Frankau and his first wife Dorothea; known mainly for her work outside the sf field. Frankau's turbulent life was in some aspects interestingly parallel to that of James Tiptree Jr, though she did not disguise her identity. Several of her novels, such as The Bridge (1957), are fantasy; The Offshore Light (1952; 1953 US as by Eliot Naylor) puts into a Near Future frame the ruminations of a world statesman who has longed to create a Utopia.
