(?   -    ) New Zealand-born author, apparently in UK from adulthood, most active in the 1940s; his sf novel, The Benevolent Despot (1945 chap), depicts a Near Future Britain, here called Hignorania, which, plausibly enough, uses Nuclear Energy for power; the tale heralds the institution of a good-tempered Utopia under the eponymous leader.
