BAILEY, Hilary
   UK writer and editor, married to Michael MOORCOCK 1962-78. She has written about 15 sf and fantasy stories, including "The Fall of Frenchy Steiner" (1964) and "Everything Blowing Up: An Adventure of Una Persson, Heroine of Time and Space" (1980), and was uncredited co-author with Moorcock of The Black Corridor (1969). When Moorcock's NEW WORLDS died as a magazine but continued for a while in quarterly paperback book format, she joined Charles PLATT as co-editor of New Worlds Quarterly 7 (anth 1974; vt New Worlds 6 1975 US), and was sole editor of \#8 (anth 1975), \#9 (anth 1975) and \#10 (anth 1976). Most of her writing is mainstream fiction with occasional sf elements, as in All the Days of my Life (1984), her almost successful bid for the bestseller market, which is essentially an updated Moll Flanders (by Daniel DEFOE [1722]); it begins in 1941 and ends in 1996. Also set in the very NEAR FUTURE (1991) is A Stranger to Herself (1989). Hannie Richards, or The Intrepid Adventures of a Restless Wife (1985) has fantastic elements.
