Deeping, Warwick

Tagged: Author

(1877-1950) UK popular author, best known for the non-fantastic Sorrel and Son (1925); the first of his many books, Uther & Igraine (1903), was an Arthurian fantasy, as were The Man on the White Horse (1934) and The Sword and the Cross (1957). The Man Who Went Back (1940) is a Timeslip epic – J W Dunne's time theories are specifically referred to – whose protagonist travels back to Britain facing Invasion from the Romans, where he learns how better to cope, on his return, with World War Two; I Live Again (1942) conveys a similar theme of martial redemption, though in this case the hero experiences Reincarnation and engages heroically in the Blitz.
