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: Sc to Th.

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.
