(1898-1971) UK author of occasional sf, who also wrote detective thrillers as by Stephen Travers; of sf interest is the title novella of The Return of the Ceteosaurus, and Other Tales (coll 1926), which pits a huge saurian (see Dinosaurs) against a Death Ray. The Great Orme Terror (1934) is a crime thriller whose Villains deploy murderous Robots. The ocean liner threatened by a resident ape (see Apes as Human) in In the Grip of the Brute (1937) has some of the lineaments of the Ship of Fools. The task of the heroine of The Lady from Venus (1947) is to acquire Earth eggs for use back home on Venus as a form of currency (see Money). [JC]
