Saville, Malcolm

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1901-1982) UK editor and author, mostly for younger readers from 1943 until his death, most of his work being grouped into various series, the best known of these being the Lone Pine sequence, centring on a group of young friends who, in the first instalment, Mystery at Witchend (1943), thwart some German spies. Nothing of his work is of sf interest except for one tale in that series, Saucers Over the Moor: A Lone Pine Story (1955), in which the gang discovers more spies, and the eponymous flying saucer (see UFOs).
