(1889-1972) German author, in active service during both World War One and World War Two; his literary reputation – never high outside Germany, as his standard-issue heroic eloquence about War did not translate as well as that of his brilliant compatriot Ernst Jünger – sank permanently after 1933, when he joined the National-socialist German Workers' Party. He is of moderate sf interest for Der Wiedergänger (1929; trans Norman Gullick as The Visitant 1931), in which a suicide suffers Identity Transfer into the psyche of a mentally unstable man who now comes to resemble the inner revenant.
