His life and books
This novel was written by Sidney Nathaniel Gould, the eldest son of Nat Gould under the pen-name "Nat Gould Junior" (1).
The book was first published in 1937 by Herbert Joseph Ltd. Nat Gould's last publisher and close friend John Long had died in the previous year.
Sidney Nathaniel Gould clearly had the talent to write really good novels. No more by "Nat Gould Junior" are known, however.
A copy of the first edition was presented by Sidney Nathaniel Gould to his wife in April 1937.
Sable Star was reprinted in 1956 by Mellifont Press.
The front cover of the reprinted edition shows the horse in the wrong colour - Sable Star was black!
A review of this book is provided in Nat Gould: the Biography by Tom Askey (2017 page 160. See the Biography page.
