BROCKWAY, (Archibald) Fenner
(1888-1988)
   UK writer long active in socialist politics - he was made a life peer in 1964 - and long respected for his humane views. His sf novel Purple Plague: A Tale of Love and Revolution (1935) uses a liner stranded at sea by a mysterious plague as a venue for egalitarian reversals of the status quo.
