An Australian pseudonym, or more likely House Name, used on several unremarkable Scientific Thrillers titles. Of most sf interest are Time Has a Door (1949 chap), in which a twentieth-century scientist Time-Travels to a Ruined Earth where Devolution has created Monsters, and Sleep Is Death (coll 1950 chap), the title story involving a crime writer and his Doppelganger, a figure who literally takes over its sibling's body. The Kensch byline was also used for four stories in the Australian magazine Thrills Incorporated 1950-1951, beginning with "Method for Murder" (April 1950 Thrills Incorporated). [JC/DRL]
