Nicholas Fisk was a pseudonym for David Higginbottom. A few further non-fiction titles followed, including Lindbergh the Lone Flier (1968) and Richthofen the Red Baron (1968), both illustrated by Raymond Briggs. He was born in London into a family with a strong creative tradition. His first novel for children, The Bouncers (1964), carried his own illustrations. This and The Fast Green Car (1965) were both realistic children’s adventures of a traditional kind that drew kindly and wittily on his own childhood. Space Hostages was a much bolder novel.
