Stephen Daniel Francis a.k.a. HANK JANSON

I am posting this text from home and have been more than surprised about how little Google or Wikipedia have on this author, not only because he was so prolific, but also the pivotal roll he had in the UK censorship fiasco that culminated in the stage managed Lady Chatterley Show Trial.

The persecution he faced in the UK that saw him move to Spain to avoid arrest, Reginald Head (the illustrator of many Hank Janson titles) changing his name to Cy Webb and the publishers ending up in jail. All of these “facts” may not be true as I am relying on my memory, though I am sure I have a full account of the trials and tribulations somewhere in the shop.

Apparently all the Hank Janson novels from 46 to 53 were written by Stephen Francis and a number of the later novels.
