(1888-1958) UK author, who wrote some popular adventure fiction, including a few Sexton Blake stories (see Sexton Blake Library), none collected. His two sf novels with Frank E Farncombe, both of which come at the end of the brief era when speculations as to the powers of the Radio were moderately rife, are the Near Future Ruled by Radio (1925), in which a "Z" Ray threatens radio-mediated world peace in 1930; and Red Radio (1927), in which similar conspiracies take even more convoluted twists.
