(1864-1937) Indian-born author, in UK from 1882 or earlier, one of nineteen children of the military surgeon Arden Hulme Beaman (1828-1915), several of whom were authors; he wrote at least four thrillers as by Ben Strong in collaboration with William Senior Ellis (1876-1940). The feats of the mysterious protagonist of his Ozmar sequence, Ozmar the Mystic (1896) and The Prince's Diamond (1898), reflect his long immersion in Theosophy. The Mad Scientist protagonist of The Experiment of Doctor Nevill (1900) transplants part of a criminal's mind into the decent cerebellum of a Lord, making a Frankenstein Monster out of a member of the nobility; but a further transplant redeems all.
