(1861-1932) Scottish-born editor and author, in Canada for some years, subsequently in England. The Club Stories assembled as The Jolly Pashas: The Story of an Unphilanthropic Society (coll of linked stories 1892) are essentially nonfantastic, or debunked [see Rationalized Fantasy in The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below]. In the Day of Battle (1894) is a highly-coloured Lost Race tale set in the Arabian desert. [JC]
