*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Were Badger Books solely the work of Lionel Fanthorpe? When were they published? Did they have to ask a question on every front cover? How often did they forget the question mark. Answers:- No, Hard to tell, Apparently and Occasionally. All this is to say that today’s terrifying tomes are a pair of Badger books. The Forbidden (a Supernatural Special), ostensibly by Leo Brett, is actually by Badger stalwart Lionel Fanthorpe and Night Of The Black Horror (Science Fiction) is by Victor Norwood as himself for once (he wrote under at least 26 other names too). Although Badger books were written to tight deadlines they remain very collectable, with distinctive cover art.
