(1897-1953) Scottish author, in active service during World War One, most of his eighteen books being adventure tales, usually juveniles (see Children's SF), all published between 1936 and 1940, often involving feats in aircraft. Of sf interest are The Ninth Plague (1936), about a Mad Scientist's attempts to block off the Sun's rays and cause the End of the World; The Green Ray (1937), in which the eponymous Ray is used to stall airplanes in flight; and the marginal Air Bandits (1937).
