Smith, Walter J

Entry updated 8 March 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1917-?2011) UK author of two sf novels, The Grand Voyage (1973) and Fourth Gear (1974), for Robert Hale Limited. More interestingly than some contributions to this publisher's sf series, the first tale involves a protagonist who joins the eponymous Voyage via Time Travel, and searches for earlier travellers who have mysteriously disappeared.

Smith apparently adopted the middle name James although no middle name or initial appears in his birth and marriage records. [JC]
