(1894-1949) UK journalist and author of two thematically connected Near Future spoofs on bureaucracy, The Birdseed Pool (1940), where the chair of a Government control board, appointed through nepotism, fails to rationalize the market for birdseed as World War Two deepens; and the similar Sunrise in the West: An Absurdity (1945). His thrillers as by Ephesian do not contain fantasy. [JC]
