Spike Gordon Author Biography - Information About the Author
Spike Gordon is a pseudonym, it seems generally accepted though we found no evidence of it in the British Library et al, of John Russell Fearn who was born in 1908 and died in 1960, best known as a prolific Science Fiction writer.
All of the books in this list are very scarce and much sought after by book collectors.
They were cheaply produced pulp novels which were never meant to be kept, simply read and discarded so it's not surprising they're rare books today.
Personal experience of book dealing also suggests that people clearing houses or getting rid of books during the last few years viewed publications such as these as worthless comics and simply discarded them whereas other books made it into the "book chain" and eventually into the hands of book collectors.
