A House Name used on early paperback sf novels published by John Spencer and Co. (later Badger Books); all this publisher's 1951-1954 titles were bylined either La Salle or Karl Zeigfreid, another Spencer house name. Menace from Mercury (1954) was the first-published novel of the prolific R L Fanthorpe (his only La Salle title). Dawn of the Half-Gods (1953; vt Space Void 1960 as by John E Muller) and Twilight Zone (1954) were by John S Glasby; both were reprinted, the former with its variant title and byline, in the Badger Books sf sequence.
