Working name of UK author Thomas Hector Martin (1913-1985) in a career that began just after the end of World War Two; he also used the floating pseudonym Peter Saxon at least once during his association with W Howard Baker, for The Curse of Rathlaw (1968) in the Guardians psychic-investigators series. His first fantastic novel, The Evil Eye (1958) for the Sexton Blake Library, was, like many of its successors, a routine occult tale; it was preceded by two other thrillers from the same series, The Copy-Cat Killings (1957) and Lady in Distress (1958), and followed by several others, generally involving some fantastic element.
