JONES, Langdon
(1942-)
   UK short-story writer, editor and musician, strongly associated with NEW WORLDS during its NEW-WAVE period both as contributor - he published all his sf stories there, beginning with "Storm Water Tunnel" in 1964 - and in various editorial capacities. His most memorable work, mostof it experimental in form and characterized by a strongly angular narrative style, appears in The Eye of the Lens (coll 1972). LJ's wide taste as an editor was demonstrated in The New SF (anth 1969); he also collaborated with Michael MOORCOCK in assembling The Nature of the Catastrophe (anth 1971), which contained a number of Jerry Corneliusstories from NW written by Moorcock and others. The first published version of Mervyn PEAKE's Titus Alone (1959) had been heavily edited because of Peake's degenerative illness, and LJ was responsible for the reconstruction work resulting in the posthumous 1970 publication of the definitive version of the book.
