This Dave Wood was a British fan from Lancaster. With Ken Potter, he founded the the British Teenage Fantasy and Science Fiction Society (aka the Junior Fanatics) in 1951. He assisted Potter with publishing Peri, the group's official organ, and Brennschluss.

Largely inactive throughout the 1960s and 1970s, he returned to activity in the 1980s, then living in Clevedon, Somerset, and published Xyster, which won a Nova Award for best fanzine in 1984, as well as the shorter And All That Jazz.

As the latter title suggests, he was a great jazz fan.
