H.F. Heard Author Biography - Information About the Author
Henry Fitzgerald Heard was, according to the British Library, born in 1889 and passed away in 1971.
The author is listed in Hubin's crime fiction reference book and his main series character is Mr Mycroft, that being Mycroft Holmes, Shelock Holmes pastiches, Sherlockian at least.
The first eight books in this bibliography are not included in Hubin but they are held in the British Library of Political and Economic Science along with some in the British Library, they are not works of fiction.
Unusually for a Britihs author American books preceded their English counterparts, often by some time, order duly noted above.
The American first edition books are obrtainable, online at least, is dust jackets at reasonable prices for collectable books. The UK edition however are rare, in fact in all our years dealing in rare crime fiction I can't recall us ever having one of the Cassell crime fiction titles in jacket
