Working name of Frederick Anthony Edwards (1896-1961), who seems to have adopted Charman as a third forename (appearing on his marriage certificate though neither the birth nor the death certificate); most of his output consisted of crime fiction. Fear Haunts the Roses (1936), a mystery novel featuring his series character Percy Aloysius Huff, involves political repercussions resulting from the discovery of a Death Ray. Of greater sf interest is Drama of Mr. Dilly (1939), a Near Future tale with a flavour of Scientific Romance in which a novelist becomes the dictator of England and is duly corrupted by power, sinking into megalomania.
