Creswick, Paul

Tagged: Author

(1866-1947) UK author, who began publishing work of some genre interest with "The Only Prince" for The Quarto in 1897, whose Robin Hood and his Adventures (1902; vt Robin Hood 1917) is one of the finest adaptations of the cycle, and whose The Beaten Path: A Fantasy (1924) is a capable ghost story. Of sf interest is The Turning Wheel (1928) for its combination of mystical themes with contemporary Disaster motifs: as the sea inundates most of Britain, the protagonists escape London and eventually find themselves inhabiting a stranded ocean liner on a newly risen Atlantis.
