Author Bio for Fearn, John Russell

Author Image

John Russell Fearn (1908–1960) was a British author and one of the first British writers to appear in American pulp science fiction magazines. Prolific author, he published his novels also as Vargo Statten and with various pseudonyms such as Thornton Ayre, Polton Cross, Geoffrey Armstrong, John Cotton, Dennis Clive, Ephriam Winiki, Astron Del Martia and others.

Fearn was a prolific writer who wrote Westerns and crime fiction as well as science fiction. His writing appeared under numerous pseudonyms. He wrote series like Adam Quirke, Clayton Drew, Golden Amazon, and Herbert. At times these drew on the pulp traditions of Edgar Rice Burroughs. His work received praise for its vividness, but criticism, being deemed "unpolished".

Author Bio for Paul, Frank Rudolph

Frank R. Paul (1884-1963) was an American artist and illustrator. He studied art and architecture in Europe before emigrating to New York in 1906. He designed several buildings there and also earned a living drawing political cartoons for newspapers and illustrating textbooks. In 1926 he devoted his work full time to illustrations, becoming one of the first professional artists who worked in the science fiction genre. He created cover illustrations for Amazing Stories for three years between 1926 to 1929. He drew for many other pulp magazines of the time continuing his work well into the 1950s.
