(1850-1926) UK editor, man-of-letters and author, some of whose work is of sf interest, though "Sir Jocelyn's Cap", his collaboration with Walter Besant in the latter's Uncle Jack, etc. (coll 1885), is fantasy. Other fantasy tales are assembled in A Nine Men's Morrice: Stories Collected and Re-Collected (coll 1889) and King Zub, and Other Stories (coll 1893). Of more sf interest is He (1887) with Andrew Lang, a kindly Parody of H Rider Haggard's She (full text 1887). [JC]
