Reid, Leslie

Tagged: Author

(1895-1977) Indian-born author, much travelled, who eventually settled in the UK. His sf novel Cauldron Bubble (1934) is a somewhat overextended tale set in a Near Future Ruritanian Europe, in which Wales (here Edwal) revolts against England (Grendel), and Germany (Belmark) foments a more and more widespread War. Though both authors are listed with the same year of birth, there is no warrant to the suspicion that Reid may have been a pseudonym of L (Leslie) P Hartley. [JC]
