John Carter

Not John Carter of Mars but John Carter of Futura. Back in 1976, Futura published two tie-in novels credited to John Carter who, otherwise, has no writing credits. Almost certainly a pen-name but one that we've been unable to figure out, making him officially a "mystery that has me mystified".

There are almost no clues to his identity except two dedications, one "To Tamsin" and one "To Sue". So who was John Carter? Was he married to Tamsin or Sue? Anyone got any ideas?

The Diamond Mercenaries, Futura 7342, 1976.

The New Avengers: The Eagle's Nest, Futura 7471, 1976.
