(1947-    ) Now the legal name of the US author who, under her earlier legal name, Ruth S Noel, published two studies of J R R Tolkien: The Languages of Tolkien's Middle-Earth (1974 chap) and The Mythology of Middle-Earth: A Study of Tolkien's Mythology and its Relationship to the Myths of the Ancient World (1977). Her three novels as Atanielle Annyn Noel rather mercilessly tumble together fantasy, sf and thriller modes into spoof plots, through which some excitements emerge willy-nilly. The Duchess of Kneedeep (1986) is a humorous fantasy with Robots. Speaker to Heaven (1987), set in a Ruined-Earth California, conflates Psi Powers and Magic. Murr on Usher's Planet (1987), evoking Edgar Allan Poe, sends its investigator protagonists to a planet containing a secret, which they uncover. [JC]
