Fawcett, F Dubrez

Tagged: Author

(1891-1968) UK author active in various genres under his own name and several others from 1923; non-sf pseudonyms included Cass Borelli, Henri Dupres, Madame E Farra, "Griff", Eugene Glen, Duke Linton, Coolidge McCann, Elmer Eliot Saks, Ben Sarto and Hank Spencer. Much of his output consisted of such thrillers as Miss Otis Comes to Piccadilly (1946) as by Ben Sarto, and its many quite popular successors. The Wonderful Isle of Ulla-Gapoo (1946) is a mild fantasy; he edited an edition of The Dubious Adventures of Baron Munchhausen (1948) as by Simpson Stokes, along with other similar productions. Air-Gods' Parade (1935) as by Simpson Stokes assembles Future War tales, usually involving aviation, with a slight hint of the Pax Aeronautica; Fawcett's one known sf novel proper is Hole in Heaven (1954), about a human body possessed by an other-dimensional Alien.
