TREVOR, (Lucy) Meriol


TREVOR, (Lucy) Meriol
(1919-)
   UK writer whose ALTERNATE-WORLD tales in the World Dionysius sequence - The Forest and the Kingdom * (1949), Hunt the King, Hide the Fox * (1950) and The Fires and the Stars * (1951) - convey a brightchildlike nostalgia for a planet which in some regards resembles Earth but whose history is more satisfactory than ours. This angle of view may be accounted for by the fact that, with Margaret PRIESTLEY (whom see for her own contributions), MT had decades earlier created the World Dionysius as a childhood fantasy. The Other Side of the Moon (1956), an sf juvenile, and Merlin's Ring (1957), an Arthurian fantasy, are unconnected to the sequence.
