Product description

Product Description

Thirteen lost literary talents, some bestsellers in their day, who are now all but forgotten:
W. Stephens Hayward: Gambler and alcoholic who wasted a fortune worth half a million in only a few years, but could count Robert Louis Stephenson amongst the fans of his novels.
Anonyma: The anonymous best-seller whose novels “No respectable bookseller would like his daughter to read … and no man who values his repute should suffer them to disgrace his shop.”
Stella M. During
Popular romance writer whose pedigree proved quite a challenge.
Edric Vredenburg: Thriller writer who turned to writing and editing books for the very young and who, as ‘Father Tuck’, was as familiar as Santa Claus on Christmas Day.
Morley Adams: Creator of puzzles, word games and number games in print and for the radio that entertained millions of readers and listeners over the decades.
Gerald Biss: Author of popular feuilletons, whose The Dupe anticipated the infamous murder of Emma Levin in Monte Carlo.
W. Holt-White: Writer of sensational novels said to make “the older school of ‘thriller’ authors look like tame and unimaginative bores.”
Alphonse Courlander: Novelist and journalist whose Mightier Than the Sword was based on his own experiences of Fleet Street, but who was overwhelmed by the horrors of war.
Ella M. Scrymsour: Actress and playwright who is today remembered for her novel The Perfect World and as the creator of Sheila Crerar, psychic detective.
Alexander Wilson: Spy novelist who faked being a spy and had four families he successfully kept secret from each other.
Guy Ramsey: The journalist who broke the story of Rudolf Hess’s imprisonment in wartime Britain.
E. T. Portwin: Writer of romances for teenagers and stories for children who eventually sold his magazine publishing and printing empire for £8 million.
Dail Ambler: Screenwriter of Beat Girl who spent her early career as a “fiction factory” churning out a novel a week.
