Biography's Source:

John Newton Chance (1911 1983) was born in London. He published the first of over a hundred mysteries, Wheels in the Forest, in 1935. He used the name "John Lymington" for some of his science fiction and horror output, and also wrote as "John Drummond," "David C. Newton," and (once) "Jonathan Chance."

Some of Chance's mysteries are still in print, and a few are even still around in large-print editions.

His science fiction was less successful. A few titles were picked up by second-line American publishers and can usually be found cheap on BookFinder. Others apparently never made it to paperback.
