GREEN, Roger (Gilbert) Lancelyn

GREEN, Roger (Gilbert) Lancelyn
   UK author, scholar, critic and translator (from classical Greek), with a special interest in FANTASY. Among his many works those most relevant to sf studies are C.S. Lewis (1963), C.S. Lewis: A Biography (1974) with Walter Hooper, and Into Other Worlds: Space-Flight in Fiction,from Lucian to Lewis (1957). The latter is one of the earlier books on sf, but is primarily pitched at a rather anecdotal and trivial level. His Andrew Lang (1946) throws light on an author whose relationship to sf hasbeen almost forgotten (Andrew LANG); a later study, Andrew Lang (1962 chap), is less thorough. RLG's allegorical and old-fashioned fantasy, From the World's End (1948), is about visionary dreams in an old house. The Land Beyond the North (1958) carries Jason and the Argonauts ultimately toa sacrifice at Stonehenge.
   Other works (nonfiction): Tellers of Tales (1946); The Story of Lewis Carroll (1949); Fifty Years of Peter Pan (1954); J.M. Barrie (1960 chap). As Editor: The Diaries of Lewis Carroll (2 vols 1953); Modern Fairy Stories (anth 1955); Fairy Stories (coll 1958) by Mary Molesworth; Thirteen Uncanny Tales (anth 1970); A Book of Magicians (anth 1973; vt A Cavalcade of Magicians US); Strange Adventuresin Time (anth 1974); The Complete Fairy Tales of George MacDonald (coll 1977); The Unknown Conan Doyle (coll 1984) with John Michael Gibson. Thislist is selective; RLG as editor and reteller produced almost 100 books for children.
