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: J to K.

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: The A-Z of Pseudonyms and the Writers Who Use Them.
