Essentially nothing is known about J. A. Meyer. A thorough search of the Internet (June, 2011) found only the following remark, from Locus Online:
- "Some of Alan E. Nourse's best-known juveniles were based on earlier short stories from the magazines: for example, The Universe Between (1965), one of my favorites, is based on two novelettes from Astounding in 1951. And Raiders from the Rings is actually based in part on another story from Astounding in 1951, "The Mauki Chant", but this story was not even written by Nourse! (The author was J.A. Meyer, apparently a friend of Nourse's: the two collaborated on another story and a novel (The Invaders are Coming!, 1959).)"
