The Nymph and the Satyr (1962) as by Arthur Farmer is a Sex novel. With his then wife, Julie Ann Jardine (1926-2012), he also wrote under the pseudonym Howard L Cory (which see).

The pseudonym Alan Hunter that was used on several Sex novels for Bee-Line – including one of mild sf interest, Maddock's The Story of "F" (1969) – may have been a House Name. [JC]
