J. D. Beresford

a.k.a. John Davys Beresford

Author Code: EJDB

Born: Mar. 17, 1873 - Castor, Peterborough, England

Died: Feb. 1, 1947 - Bath, Avon, England

Educated in the field of architecture at Oundle and Peterborough, Beresford suffered from infantile paralysis when a child which kept him an invalid for much of his life. After working as an architect for a short time, he turned to writing, and in 1911 published his first novel, The Hampdenshire Wonder, which won critical acclaim. In 1913, he published Gosling, a futuristic novel of an all-female society and thus predated Gilman's Herland by a couple of years. His first collection of short stories, Nineteen Impressions, appeared in 1918. Many of Beresford's novels and short stories are reminiscent of H.G. Wells, who had a strong influence on him. His daughter Elizabeth is the author who created the "Wombles". Beresford's other works include A Candidate for Truth (1912), The Invisible Event (1915), Signs and Wonders (1921), All or Nothing (1928), The Camberwell Miracle (1933), What Dreams May Come (1941) and A Common Enemy (1941).
