BROOKE, (Bernard) Jocelyn
(1908-1966)
   UK writer, most noted for psychological fantasias like The Scapegoat (1949) and The Goose Cathedral (1950). The Image of a Drawn Sword (1950) uses borderline sf devices to convey the dreamlike horror of its protagonist's recruitment into a merciless army. The Crisis in Bulgaria, or Ibsen to the Rescue! (1956), with the author's own collage illustrations, combines Victorian fantasy and parody.
