H. Russell Wakefield

a.k.a. Herbert Russell Wakefield

Author Code: EHRW

Born: May 9, 1888 - Kent, England

Died: Aug. 10, 1964 - London, England

The son of the bishop of Birmingham, Wakefield was educated at Marlborough College and University College, Oxford. After graduation, he worked for two years as secretary to Lord Northcliffe before entering the army at the outbreak of war. He served with the Royal Scots Fusiliers in both France and the Balkans and reached the rank of captain. Following the war, he worked as an editor at Philip Alan publishers in London. He began to experiment on writing his own horror stories and in 1928, published They Return at Evening, which was a great success and by 1930, he had left work to concentrate on writing full-time. Over the next decade, he had a number of successes, mostly in the supernatural genre. During the Second World War, he worked as an air raid warden and saw his own home destroyed by a Nazi bombing raid during the final months of the war. For the remainder of his life, he lived in rented accommodations. After his death from cancer in 1964, interest in his work declined. His best work was undoubtedly that of his early years. His works include Old Man's Beard (1929), Others Who Returned (1929), The Bicycle Case (1930), Imagine a Man in a Box (1931), Ghost Stories (1932), Landru; the French Bluebeard (1936), The Clock Strikes Twelve (1940), Strayers From Sheol (1961) and Reunion at Dawn (2000 Posthumous).
