(circa 1845-1926) Pseudonym of Frank Davis, UK author of at least 45 novels and other work from the 1860s until well into the following century; the eponymous clockmaker and chemist of The Justification of Andrew Lebrun (1894) resuscitates a man who has been in Suspended Animation for a century, whose accumulated savings make him rich, and who behaves with melodramatic villainy, until good wins out.
