(1883-1950) UK lawyer and author whose Modernities (coll 1913) contains vivid studies of contemporary literary figures; in his sf novel, The Quisto-Box (1925), the consequences of the Invention of a mind-reading Machine are lightly explored: unchecked powers of Telepathy breaks up families, make government impossible, and so forth.
