SF Gateway Welcomes R L Fanthorpe!

Have you ever thrilled to the SF adventures of Lionel Roberts?  Raced breakneck through the breathless prose of Leo Brett?  Indulged in the macabre tales of Bron Fane 0r the galaxy-spanning stories of Pel Torro? Does the name John E. Muller mean anything to you?  What about Karl Zeigfreid? Trebor Thorpe?

Believe it or not, the prodigious output of all of the above – and more! – is down to one man: R L Fanthorpe. To quote The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction:

From 1954 to 1965 Fanthorpe was an sf writer of remarkable productivity, towards the end of that period producing novels on a weekly schedule for Badger Books, an imprint of John Spencer and Co . . . It has been claimed of Fanthorpe that for the years in which he wrote, chiefly 1958 to 1965, he was the world’s most prolific writer in the genre.

Why do we share this knowledge with you? Because the SF Gateway is delighted to announce that R L Fanthorpe – including all his bewildering array of pen names – is joining the SF Gateway! Contracts have been signed, books have been acquired and we anticipate being able to start bringing you eBooks before the year is out.

Behold the works of Fanthorpe!



And heed well the words of Neil Gaiman: “Do not read too much Lionel Fanthorpe at one go, your brains will turn to guacamole and drip out of your ears”
