(1908-1982) Indian-born soldier, teacher and author, in the UK from childhood, most of whose works were historical novels. Of sf interest is The Chilian Club: A Diversion (1971; vt The Yellow Room 1971), set in a Near Future Britain threatened by trade unions (see Politics), which are (it is here presumed) run by Communists. A cadre of retired soldiers takes things in hand by eliminating the union leaders; a duplicitous left-wing bishop is roundly drowned at the climax. [JC]
