Thomas, Alan

Page history last edited by Jon 10 years, 7 months ago

Alan Thomas was the pseudonym of Ernest Wentworth (1896-??), an English writer.


Alan (Ernest Wentworth) Thomas was born in London in 1896. He was educated at Malvern College and Cambridge, and was a barrister and literary editor. Died in 1969. I list 16 titles in my bibliography, but 8 of them may be at least marginally criminous. The Insp. Widgeon who appears in The Death of Laurence Vining also turns up at least in Death of the Home Secretary (1933). Thomas's other series characters, Maurice Arbuthnot and Cyril Fortescue, appear in The Stolen Cellini (1931) and Summer Adventure (1933).
