A BIBLIOGRAPHY BY ROY GLASHAN

TABLE OF CONTENTS



INTRODUCTION

The British author Thomas Charles Bridges, who wrote as "T.C. Bridges," "Tom Bridges" and "Christopher Beck," "Martin Shaw" and "John N. Stanton,"[*] was born in Bagnères de Bigorre, France, on 22 August 1868. The son of a clergyman, he was educated at Marlborough College in Wiltshire, England.

[* Bridges' use of the pseudonyms "Martin Shaw" and "John N. Stanton" is documented in Chris Gosnell's genealogy of the Bridges family. T.J. Carter's Dictionary of Literary Pseudonyms in the English Language (Maxwell Publishing Ltd., London, 1995) tells us that the pseudonym "Martin Shaw" was used for stories published in the magazine Boy's Realm. According to The Fiction Mags Index, the same pseudonym was used by the British writer Ed Martin (1874-1944). This suggests that it may have been a "house name" used by the publisher of Boy's Realm and other periodicals for young readers, Harmsworth; Amalgamated Press, London.]


In 1886 Bridges went to Florida to work on an orange plantation. After eight financially unprofitable years he returned to England in 1894, almost penniless, and decided to try his hand at writing.

His first two articles on fishing in Florida appeared in The Field. The earliest work documented in the course of research for this bibliography was an article titled "Kill or Cure" that appeared in The Penny Pictorial Magazine on 15 July 1899.

Bridges wrote free-lance contributions for many periodicals, eventually joining the staff of Answers, a weekly published by the Amalgamated Press, London, as a sub-editor. He worked for this magazine for some four years, at the end of which he resigned to concentrate on free-lance writing.

Bridges' works were often syndicated for publication in other countries, notably in Australia. Several of his stories and serials are available in the digital newspaper archive of the National Library of Australia.

In the early 1900's, Bridges and his wife (whom he married in 1899) went to live in Dartmoor, Cornwall, only two miles from the notorious prison at Princeton. Many of the stories that he wrote there featured prisons and their inmates, one example being the Sexton Blake thriller Ten Years' Penal Servitude (1911).

Bridges, whose hobbies included fishing, golf and gardening, published his autobiography From Florida to Fleet Street in 1928.

He spent his last years in Torquay, Devonshire, where, after a long and successful writing career, he died on 26 May 1944.


Bridges, a prolific writer, sold articles and stories (the latter mostly for a juvenile readership) to numerous British newspapers and magazines. He penned his first boys' story in 1902, and Gilbert Floyd, the editor of Boys Realm, commissioned him to write a serial for that paper. The result was Paddy Leary's Schooldays, a story about the adventures of an Australian boy at an English public school. It's popularity inspired him to write two long sequels and several short stories about the same characters.

Among other things, Bridges wrote Sexton Blake stories for The Union Jack (Amalgamated Press, London) and contributed to the Boys' Own Paper, The Scout, and The Children's Newspaper until the late 1930's. Several of the books in his huge opus were published posthumously.

A number of his works are "lost civilisation" novels.

In Martin Crusoe: A Boy's Adventure on Wizard Island (1920) he describes a land populated by descendants of the survivors of Atlantis

Men of the Mist (1922) is a lost race tale set in a region of Alaska where prehistoric creatures have survived.

The People of the Chasm (1923), which Bridges wrote as Christopher Beck, features monstrous insects, giant apes and Norsemen living in a a temperate zone near the North Pole.

The City of No Escape (1925) is set in a lost world inhabited by robot-like beings.

In the vintage science fiction novel The Death Star (1940), which he dedicated "To Jules Verne, first of science fiction writers," Bridges describes an Earth largely devastated and depopulated by a terrible disturbance in the solar system. The story relates the adventures of seven men adrift in a marvellous airship of the future. There is a battle to death between two scientists, one seeking to build up a new and better world on the ruins of the old, the other a fiend fighting to set up a system which would destroy finally what life was left on Earth.
