John Raymond Brosnan (7 October 1947 – 11 April 2005)[1] was an Australian writer of both fiction and non-fiction works in the fantasy and science fiction genres. He was born in Perth, Western Australia, and died in South Harrow, London, from acute pancreatitis.[2] He sometimes published under the pseudonyms Harry Adam Knight, Simon Ian Childer[3] (both sometimes used together with Leroy Kettle), James Blackstone (used together with John Baxter), and John Raymond. Three movies were based on his novels–Beyond Bedlam (aka Nightscare), Proteus (based on Slimer), and Carnosaur. In addition to science fiction, he also wrote a number of books about cinema and was a regular columnist with the popular UK magazine Starburst and comic 2000 AD.[4] Liverpool University holds a collection of his work consisting of both published material and drafts.[5]
