(1882-1949) UK playwright, drama critic and author, active in English literary circles from around 1910. His sf novel, Man Alone (1940), describes the experiences of the Last Man on Earth as he wanders through London after the final, depopulating Disaster. Castle Cottage (1940) is a ghost story and The Cool of the Evening (1942) a rather gentle Adam-and-Eve fable set at the close of Adam's life, though Satan still lurks. [JC]
