Lionel Davidson (1922 – 2009)


This site is dedicated exclusively to the memory of Lionel Davidson, the noted British author.

Lionel is primarily remembered for his “Thriller” novels, but he also wrote a few children’s books, and some short stories.  This site contains extensive biographical data, a catalogue of all of his works, commentary and criticism, rememberances, and links to many relevant Internet sites. It is intended that this site be a full source site for anyone seeking information about Lionel and his works.

Prior to his death in 2009, Lionel made a request that any use of his literary papers and properties after his death should be for artistic, and not commercial, purposes.  It is in the spirit of honoring that request that certain of his friends and family have urged and supported the development of an Internet site which focuses solely on Lionel and his works.

There is a wealth of information about Lionel Davidson already on the Internet.  We hope to be able to organize and add to that which is already available.  We encourage those of you who may have special memories or materials to share them with us.  If they suit the purpose of this site we will publish them.

Thank you for your interest.



This site is approved by the executors of the estate of the late Lionel and Frances Davidson.
