Alan W. Lear (October 26 1953 - December 26 2008) was a Scottish writer of science fiction and horror. His works include plays for the Audio Visuals series of amateur-produced Doctor Who stories and several short fiction stories.[1][2]

Illness[edit | edit source]

Lear came down with glandular fever in 1976, which developed into chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). He lived with CFS for the remainder of his life, which severely affected his opportunities to advance his writing. Lear died on Boxing Day, December 26, 2008 at the age of 55.[3][4]
