Conrad, Paul

Tagged: Author

Preferred pseudonym of UK author and journalist Albert King (1924-1994), an extremely prolific writer in various genres under a series of names: for his Robert Hale Limited sf he used Paul Conrad, his own name, Mark Bannon, Floyd Gibson, Scott Howell, Christopher King and Paul Muller. Born in Northern Ireland, he left school at the age of 14. He was the author of about 120 Westerns, 44 thrillers and 29 romances in addition to his production of 16 sf titles (over two years), of which the most notable are perhaps Ex Minus (1974), as by Conrad, in which Disaster results from an experimental attempt to create human life, and The World of Jonah Klee (1976), as by Christopher King. Most of his work was routine adventure. [JC]
