Pseudonym of UK-born politician and author Hugh H Lusk (1838-1926), in New Zealand and Australia most of his life; not to be confused with Owen Hall, the pseudonym under which UK theatre critic James Davis (1853-1907) wrote plays. Along with some supernatural tales, Hall is of interest for a Lost Race tale, Eureka (1899), whose scholarly protagonists proceed, via the perusal of ancient documents, to the discovery of a hidden City in Australia, home of a last remnant of Alexander the Great's Greeks. Eureka is a princess who dies. [JC]
