Meet Frank Richards [video]

Frank Richards (Charles Harold St. John Hamilton, 1876-1961) was the creator of one of Britain's greatest icons, Billy Bunter. He was a phenomenal writer, his lifetime output reaching somewhere around 75 million words, making him the most prolific author ever. There are many excellent websites about Hamilton and his creations; a good starting point is his entry on Wikipedia for a brief summary and the Collecting Books and Magazines and The Friars' Club websites if you want to learn more.

Thanks for that Steve. May I be so bold to recommend this site to Charles Hamilton fans?
