Home-Gall, Edward R

Tagged: Author

(1897-1974) UK writer, son of William Benjamin Home-Gall; he was the most prolific of all authors of work for the Boys' Papers after Frank Richards (usual pseudonym of Charles Hamilton [1876-1961]), producing an estimated 35 million words; it is not known how much of his magazine work, much of it pseudonymous, was of sf interest. He was responsible for two Human Bat tales: The Human Bat; No 1 in the Series: "Caught in the Spider's Web" (1950) and The Human Bat v the Robot Gangster (1950), uneasily (after the English manner) featuring a Superhero protagonist.
