Cristabel

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of US nurse, professor of nursing, and author Christine Elizabeth Abrahamsen (1916-1995), who wrote at least one Gothic as Kathleen Westcott, Bride of Kilkerran (1972). As Cristabel, she began publishing sf with the florid Veltakin sequence of Planetary Romances: Manalacor of Veltakin (1970) and The Cruachan and the Killane (1970). Her singletons were The Mortal Immortals (1971) and The Golden Olive (1972). All are written in a style that crosses the romance genre with boys' fiction. [PN/JC]
