Absolutely fascinating information presented in such a dry and pretentious manner that I struggled to get through it. It'd make for a valuable reference book, but to read from cover to cover it was quite painful.

John Lymington (1911-1983) was born John Newton Chance in London. He was a prolific writer of short stories, children's literature, mystery and science fiction novels. An obituary in Ansible Link credits Lymington with writing over 150 novels, 'including 20+ SF potboilers', adding that he 'made a steady income by delivering thrillers to Robert Hale (the publisher) at a chapter a week'.
