Harrison, G B

Tagged: Author

(1894-1991) UK scholar, editor of three editions of the works of William Shakespeare, perhaps now best known for his five-volume compilation/recreation of Elizabethan and Jacobean journals beginning with An Elizabethan Journal: Being a Record of Those Things Most Talked About During the Years 1591-1594 (1928); mostly in the USA or elsewhere abroad after 1943. Of sf interest is The Fires of Arcadia (1965), in which a scientist at Arcadia College in New England creates satyrs (see Biology; Mythology) by cross-breeding animals with human beings; retribution soon follows.
