(1929- ) UK author, a former commercial artist and long-time newspaper journalist, well known in British Fandom during the 1950s. He began to publish work of genre interest with "Perseus" for Futuristic Science Stories #7 in 1952; other SF Magazine stories followed, including two as by Anthony Martin. His sf novels – both routine Pulp productions typical of UK publishing at the time – are Search the Dark Stars (1961), under the Badger Books House Name John E Muller, and Plan for Conquest (1963). Though he preferred sf, Glynn mostly wrote Westerns. He has more recently published short fiction in Philip Harbottle's twenty-first century Fantasy Adventures anthologies, several of these stories being collected as Mystery in Moon Lane: Supernatural Mystery Stories (coll 2013).
He should not be confused with the biologist A A (Alan Anthony) Glynn who has published much medical material, nor with Alan Glynn (1960- ) the Irish author of detective stories. [JC/DRL]
