"Revered for his intellect, feared for his acerbic wit..." Author of Enemies of Promise and The Unquiet Grave, and, perhaps most importantly, founding editor of "Horizon" literary magazine. A man of strong personality and rich tastes who managed to overcome his impoverished beginnings to climb the social and literary ladder. Very minor bump to two corners, else fine.
