Pseudonym of UK traveller, rancher and author Sidney Groves Burkhard (1867-1943), mostly of Westerns from 1903. Of some sf interest are two novels: The Heart of Unaga (1920), which features a tribe of Native Americans who hibernate through the winter (see Suspended Animation); and The Vampire of N'Gobi (1936), a Lost Race tale set in central Asia featuring a She figure who literally sucks the blood of her victims (see Vampires).
