Pseudonym of UK author and physician Joseph Henry Philpot (1850-1939), whose The Forsaken Way: A Romance (1900) depicts a devastated UK, at the close of the twentieth century, as a Decadent and therefore romantic ruin (see Ruins and Futurity). After falling in love, the protagonist leaves his monastery and starts a new life. [JC]
