(1889-1936) UK author, in active service during World War One, whose The Table: The Novel of Edgar Wallace's Film Story (1936) is a Tie to an unfilmed screenplay by Edgar Wallace, for whom Curtis worked as his secretary. A medical experiment goes wrong, resulting in the creation of Zombies who terrorize the mise en scene until defeated. None of Curtis's five previous novelizations of posthumous Wallace stories, four of them adapting playscripts, are of sf interest. [JC]
