In The A-Z of Authors and Their Pseudonyms the author's name appears first, arranged alphabetically by surname. This is followed by his or her lifespan, pseudonyms associated with the said writer 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 authors with surnames beginning with: C-D.

A link at the foot of the page will take you to the next and there is a link at the top of this page, should you wish to return to the previous page.

I am also publishing an alternative: The A-Z of Pseudonyms and the Writers Who Use Them.
