Crisp, Frank R

Tagged: Author

(1915-1996) UK author, at one time in the Merchant Navy; his Dirk Rogers sea adventures, which are his best work, sometimes veer close to the fantastic. His sf novels, The Ape of London (1959) and The Night Callers (1960), are routine adventures deploying thriller and horror elements; their sf displacement is inconsiderable. The latter, involving an alien Invasion, was filmed as The Night Caller (1965). [JC]
