(1894-1968) UK author, who in later life became well-known as a cricket columnist, writing as A A Thomson; he was in active service during World War One. Thomson is of some interest for his first book, The World of Billiam Wissold (1927), a Parody of the club-bore style of H G Wells's The World of William Clissold: A Novel at a New Angle (1926 3vols), which incorporates a modestly sympathetic Satire of its promulgation of the Open Conspiracy and its proleptic visions of a World State. Thomson was made an MBE in 1966. [JC]
