Pseudonym of an insecurely identified author, possibly Benjamin Hayward (?   -?   ), active from before 1900 in the magazines with most of his work 1908-1927 appearing in Boy's Own Paper (see Boys' Papers). Of sf interest are The Sheik's White Slave: Being an Account of the Unravelling of the Mysteries of the Temple of Djaramos (1895), a Lost Race tale set in North Africa, and The Quest for the Arctic Poppy: A Tale of the Great Ice-Wastes of the Far North (February-September 1922 Boy's Own Paper as "In the Realm of the Arctic Poppy"; 1923), in which a Lost World is discovered, where prehistoric creatures wander.
