Francis Flagg, pseudonym of George H. Weiss or Henry George Weiss: * The Night People [Fantasy Publishing Company, Inc., 1947] Liz Flaherty: Member of Romance Writers of America; website Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880): leading author of France, whose novels are not quite Romance, as they lack happy endings. Ian Fleming, full name Ian Lancaster Fleming (28 May 1908-12 Aug 1964): British author who almost single-handedly revived the espionage thriller genre with James Bond, 007.
