Pseudonym of UK author Digby George Gerahty (1898-1981), who usually wrote as by Robert Standish; as Lister, he wrote one tale of sf interest, Hail Bolonia! (1948), a Satire on the possibility of genuine Utopian change: in the imaginary country of Bolonia, social and Ecological problems, including Overpopulation, are dealt with promptly; newspapers are truthful; old men retire willingly before they are pushed.
