DAVIES, Hugh Sykes


DAVIES, Hugh Sykes
(1909-1984)
   UK writer and academic whose surrealist novel Petron (1935) is, at least retroactively, of some value to sf writers and readers as an early model for contemporary attempts at the rendering of INNER SPACE. The Papers of Andrew Melmoth (1960) is an interesting story about the EVOLUTION of INTELLIGENCE in rats, quite different, in its quiet literary tone, from the Gothic treatment such subjects normally evoke.
