Joint pseudonym of Scottish authors John Ressich (1877-1937) and Eric de Banzie (1894-1986), the latter in active service during World War One. In their Near Future Scientific Romance Blue Lightning (1926) a renegade British lord whose ancestry is foreign (see Yellow Peril) plots worldwide chaos with the aid of a Death Ray: blacks (see Race in SF) will attack America, from within; other races will assault civilization on other continents. The plot is foiled, though the ray causes some damage before it is destroyed. [JC]
