St John, 1458 W Locust St, Dubuque, IA 52001, Stati Uniti
Charles Dodd Naylor, Jr (May 3, 1944 – July 30, 2005) was an American editor and author, the partner of Thomas M. Disch between 1969 and 2005.
He wrote a gothic novel, Steps to the Grotto (1974) as by Cassandra Nye, echoing the Cassandra Knye pseudonym used earlier for gothics by Disch and John T Sladek. Under his own name, Neighboring Lives (1981) with Thomas M. Disch is a non-sf historical analysis in fictional terms of mid-nineteenth-century English literary life, focusing on Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) and his wife, Jane Baillie Welsh Carlyle (1801-1866). Naylor's two original-story Anthologies – New Constellations: An Anthology of Tomorrow's Mythologies (anth 1976) with Thomas M. Disch and Strangeness: A Collection of Curious Tales (anth 1977) with Thomas M. Disch – are of considerable genre interest.
