Information anyone?

Can any New Statesman reader shed light on the later career of the journalist and writer Wilfred Macartney? Best known for his prison autobiography, Walls Have Mouths, written in the 1930s, he was the subject of a court prosecution in 1946.

I should also be obliged if anyone knows where I can contact the estate of the author Jason Gurney (author of Crusade in Spain), as his publisher no longer has a forwarding address.
