Or how about Zola's Rougon-Macquart series, translated by Frank O'Fyle?

And I shall translate 'Gone with the Wind' into Spanish, under the name Frank Leigh-Madeira Don Guivadam.

I would be Finnegan Gillespie...now that sounds quite good for a writer of thrillers.

I never had a pet.  Perhaps that explains a lot!

[quote="Gul Darr"], I could always try writing a fantasy novel under the pseudonym Stephen Donaldson!

There used to be a dinner party game of saying that a good pseudonym if you wanted to be a writer of erotica was to take the name of your first pet and add it to your mother's maiden name.  In my case this works out as Lucky Merchant, which does have a certain racy ring to it.



I become Dinah Townshend, which I think sounds  Mills and Boon rather than erotica!

Doesn't really work for me. The only pets I ever had were a couple of goldfish I used to call Laurel and Hardy. And my mother's maiden name is Ganguly (like the cricketer - no relation, by the way). Now, Laurel & Hardy Ganguly makes no sense at all...

I don't know, I think Hardy Ganguly could do quite well in certain fields...!
