(1934-    ) US self-styled hack author, son of illustrator Albert Nuetzel (1901-1969), who began publishing work of genre interest with "A Very Cultured Taste" (1960 Jade Magazine); in various genres, under a variety of names, he wrote over seventy paperback novels. Lost City of the Damned (1961 as by Alec Rivere; exp vt Jungle Jungle 1969 as Nuetzel) was a routine though very late Lost Race tale. Lovers: 2075 (1964) as by Charles English, only mildly erotic – like Queen of Blood (1966), a film Tie – though with a Dystopian sting, and was marketed as such (by Nuetzel: it was published by his own firm, NAC Publications). Images of Tomorrow (coll 1969) assembled satirical tales. The Noomas sequence, comprising Warriors of Noomas (1969) and its sequel Raiders of Noomas (1969), were romantic adventures heavily influenced by Edgar Rice Burroughs, as was Swordsmen of Vistar (1969). The last four titles were all published by Powell Books, which Nuetzel founded and whose sf line he edited, as was The Slaves of Lomooro (1969) as by Albert Augustus Jr. Nuetzel retired from writing in 1971.
