Richard Lewis is the pseudonym of British author Alan Radnor, who wrote fiction, television tie-ins, and non-fiction. As Richard Lewis, he wrote several horror novels in the late-1970s and 1980s, including what seems to have been his best known title, Spiders. His pulp horror novels, which stayed mostly in the nature-gone-amok vein, were released by Hamlyn in the UK and Signet in the US. His other novels include The Web, Devil’s Coach Horse (published as The Black Horde in the US), Parasite, Night Killers, and a novelization of David Cronenberg’s film Rabid.
Horrorpedia (which has a nice article with other book covers posted here) reports that Radnor also served in 1986 as producer on Worlds Beyond, a British television anthology series based on real-life reports of psychic phenomena, although IMDb only gives him credit as a writer on one episode, so I wasn’t able to confirm the report.
