Pseudonym of UK journalist and author Francis Edward Grainger (1857-1927), who mostly wrote nonfantastic thrillers and police procedurals. The Spies of the Wight (1899), which describes a threatened Invasion of England, edges into the very Near Future; the novel-length title story assembled in Seaward for the Foe (coll 1903) is a Future War tale in which England is pitted against France.
