Further Information
Eden Phillpotts was born in India on 4 November 1862 and educated in England. He was a tremendously prolific author, writing at least twice as many non-criminous novels and countless short stories, both collected and uncollected. The publishing history is equally chaotic, priority between UK and US switches continually, and many titles were never published in the US. His series characters were Avis Bryden and John Ringrose. The author died in 1960.
