William Heinemann: London. 1938.

''a surprising amount of his work makes use of sf or fantasy themes and devices, though sometimes in a delusional frame, as with Albert Goes Through (1933), whose eponymous hero's experiences in an absurd cinematic universe are explained as a fever-dream. But sf concerns do to some extent propel Adam in Moonshine (1927), featuring a Ruritanian-flavoured conspiracy to restore monarchical rule to the UK, and Benighted (1927; vt The Old Dark House 1928) - and appear more overtly in THE DOOMSDAY MEN (1938), where a Mad Scientist has housed a doomsday Weapon in a tower in Los Angeles'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''the theme of the primitive heroine comes sharply into focus in Gráinne (1987), which draws upon the Celtic legend of the Goddess and explores her power in the modern age through the form of a mysterious young girl. These novels form the author's main corpus of fantastic fiction. They have affinities with the work of Robert Holdstock and Richard Cowper in the exploration of mythic figures. They find a natural conclusion in THE ROAD TO PARADISE (1988), a contemporary timeslip novel where the weight of Britain's past begins to haunt the heroine'' (Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
