Keverne, Richard

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of UK journalist and author Clifford James Wheeler Hosken (1882-1950), who wrote detective novels between 1926 and 1944, mostly as by Keverne, though occasionally under his own name. Of sf interest is White Gas (1937), the eponymous Invention being an antidote to poison gas – in 1937 it was still assumed that the latter would continue to be used as a weapon of War. [JC]
