Tagged: Author

(1921-1982) US portrait photographer and author of fiction for the Young Adult market, including one sf novel, Stranger from the Depths (1967). Here the seeming last survivor of an ancient amphibian civilization from the Hollow Earth is discovered by a party of young US high-schoolers and their mentor, a college professor. The lizard-like being awakens (see Sleeper Awakes) and leads them to his people's Underground City; but there are other survivors in another city, and conflict ensues. [JC/DRL]
