(???? – )

Jim Linwood, a British fan, sometimes spells his name Jhim. Perhaps his most prominent contribution to the field was his coinage of the term "New Wave" in Les Spinge in 1964.

He was a member of NotFans and a founder of the Young Science Fiction Reading Group for which he published the YSFRG Newsletter. He was a member of OMPA for which he published Fifty-Second Street, Jetstream, Son of the Fanalytic Eye, and Movie Music.

In the 1960s and 1970s, he earned a reputation as an incisive fanzine reviewer, with columns such as "The Moving Target".

Towards the end of the 1970s, he became fannishly inactive, but was enticed back to fandom by Greg Pickersgill and Peter Weston circa 2000.

He compiled an index to the 1950s Scots prozine, Nebula Science Fiction: Nebula Science Fiction: 1952-1959.

His wife, Marion Linwood (nee Lansdale), is also a fan. They married in March 1963 and by way of honeymoon attended that year's Eastercon.
