Carr, Robert Spencer

Tagged: Author

(1909-1994) US author, who began publishing work of sf interest as a teenager with "The Composite Brain" for Weird Tales in March 1925; his first novel, The Rampant Age (1928), which is not fantastic, was also precocious. He was the author of one fantasy novel filled with an erotic nostalgia for death, The Room Beyond (1948), and of Beyond Infinity (coll 1951), four warmly realized stories set on Earth in the mid-twentieth century but with sf content. In later years he became heavily involved in arguing for the existence of a UFO presence on Earth; and in 1974 accused the USA government of concealing the fact that it had done autopsies on the bodies of twelve Aliens whose flying saucer had crashed near Aztec, New Mexico, in the late 1940s.
