Query: G.H. Orwell (fwd)
>From Robert Cook, University of Iceland

Query: Why does VN refer to George Orwell as "G. H. Orwell" in the Foreword
to Invitation to a Beheading? As far as I can see from checking books and
bibliographies, Orwell always went by the name "George Orwell," with no
middle initial.
