A-Z of Pseudonyms and the Writers Who Use Them: Æ to Lee Barton

A-Z of Pseudonyms and the Writers Who Use Them from Æ to Barton. The pseudonyms on this page include: Æ, Æon, Staton Abbey, John Abbott, Tabourot des Accord, Seigneur des Accords, Cecil Adair, Sally Adair, Uncle Adam, Chuck Adams, John Adams, James Albany, John Alvarez, João Antônio Andreoni, Elton V. Andrews, Opal Andrews, John Arbuthnott, Amos Armfield, Gordon Ashe, Philip Aston, Autholycus, David Axton, Alex Baldwin, Neil Balfort, George Alexis Bankoff, Charles M. Barker, Brother Barnabas, Othello Baron, Erle Barton and Lee Barton. All pseudonyms include the actual writer's name, lifespan and notes relevant to the pseudonym.

In my A-Z of Pseudonyms and the Writers Who Use Them the pseudonym appears first, arranged alphabetically by surname (where there is one). This is followed by the writer’s actual name, lifespan and some brief explanatory notes. Entries are arranged over several pages and, as I am using a database to store the information, the list will be expanded periodically:

This page covers pseudonyms with surnames beginning with: A to Ba.

A link at the foot of this and subsequent pages will take you to the next, while a link near the top of the page will return you to the previous one.

I am also publishing an alternative: A-Z of Authors and Their Pseudonyms.
