   Working name of UK poet, critic and novelist Edward Harold Physick (1878-1972). His fiction - like The Haunted Island (1910), a complex tale featuring ghosts, MAGIC and piracy - is essentially fantasy, although Medusa: A Story of Mystery (1929), an almost surreal FANTASTIC VOYAGE intounknown seas, gives the eponymous South Pacific sea monster an sf-like rationale. "The Shadow", a good surrealist ghost novella, appeared in Crimes, Creeps and Thrills (anth 1936) ed John GAWSWORTH. As a friend ofDavid LINDSAY, EHV contributed an essay to The Strange Genius of David Lindsay (anth 1970).
