(1941-2005) US editor and author, the partner of Thomas M Disch between 1969 and 2005. He wrote a gothic novel, Steps to the Grotto (1974) as by Cassandra Nye, echoing the Cassandra Knye pseudonym used earlier for gothics by Disch and John T Sladek. Under his own name, Neighboring Lives (1981) with Thomas M Disch is a non-sf historical analysis in fictional terms of mid-nineteenth-century English literary life, focusing on Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) and his wife, Jane Baillie Welsh Carlyle (1801-1866). Naylor's two original-story AnthologiesNew Constellations: An Anthology of Tomorrow's Mythologies (anth 1976) with Thomas M Disch and Strangeness: A Collection of Curious Tales (anth 1977) with Thomas M Disch – are of considerable genre interest.
