(1912-1970) UK-born film producer (for the National Film Board of Canada), diplomat (in the Canadian Department of External Affairs) and author, in Australia from 1920, in Canada after 1934; son of the novelist Angela Thirkell (1890-1961) – another son of hers was Colin MacInnes (1914-1976), who spelt his surname thus. Most of McInnes's work is not sf, but Lost Island: An Adventure (1954) is a Lost-Race story, in which a Canadian aviator crashlands on an Edenic Island originally discovered by Francis Drake and populated by descendants of his crew.
