Tagged: Author

(1905-1981) UK who began publishing thrillers in the 1930s and 1940s. His sf was restricted to the 1960s. City of the Hidden Eyes (1960) with Philip Levene was adapted from the latter's BBC Radio serial about Underground Monsters threatening the surface world. As Richard Saxon, Morrissey wrote several volumes of inconspicuous but not entirely negligible sf, including The Stars Came Down (1964), which is a Utopia, The Hour of the Phoenix (1964; 1965 US as by Henry Richards), Cosmic Crusade (1964) and Future for Sale (1964).
