Cyril Donson – Draco The Dragon Man [Horror #5 ???] (New English Library, 1974)

Draco the Dragon Man

Draco the Dragon Man

Can’t help you much with this one but according to Justin Marriott in Paperback Fanatic #8 (2009):

“Damon Draycott, a world renowned archaeologist, discovers a race of mind-reading lizard men living in the bowels of the earth   …… Among his NEL contemporaries, Donson is neck and neck with Etienne Aubin as the least rewarding of horror authors.”

Surely there is no higher praise, especially as he’d have to fight off ‘Simon Majors’ and his notoriously punishing The Druid Stone to be in contention for such an accolade?

Thanks to Nightreader for providing the cover scan!
