More > January 1926) was an English writer, chiefly known for his popular fiction, which included feminist, pacifist, and pro-labour themes.Although born of British parents, George grew up in Paris and did not learn English until the age of twenty. In 1905 he moved to London, where he became a journalist. The success of his first novel, A Bed of Roses (1911), about a woman's descent into prostitution, allowed him to apply himself full-time to literary efforts. His subsequent books also generally sold well, often requiring more than one edition and appearing on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to novels and short stories, George also wrote literary essays and several political tracts on left-wing themes. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._L._George< Less

More > Edna Lyall, was an English novelist, and an early feminist.Bayly was born in Brighton, the youngest of four children of a barrister. At an early age, she lost both her parents and she spent her youth with an uncle in Surrey and in a Brighton private school. Bayly never married and she seems to have spent her adult life living with her two married sisters and her brother, a clergyman in Bosbury in Herefordshire.In 1879, she published her first novel, Won by Waiting, under the pen name of "Edna Lyall" (apparently derived from transposing letters from Ada Ellen Bayly). The book was not a success. Success came with We Two, based on the life of Charles Bradlaugh, a social reformer and advocate of free thought.

Mr Hornung’s Three Goddesses - a Victorian novelist at work By Peter Rowland
Paperback: $8.35
Prints in 3-5 business days
So far as it goes, Goddesses Three is an absorbing study of the Pontifex family, and (ultimately) of Anglo-Portuguese relations. E.W. Hornung apparently began writing this book in 1894 but put it... More > aside after completing eleven chapters. Set primarily in an English Rectory, it is very much a work in progress, written partly in pencil and partly in ink, and incorporating a vast number of revisions. In addition to deciphering 99% of the manuscript, and producing an edited text for the general reader, the editor has examined it on a chapter-by-chapter basis. This results in a fuller notion of how the story was being shaped and the occasional problems encountered – and pinpoints Hornung’s consequent changes and instructions to himself. We are, as it were, looking over his shoulder for the whole time, and gain (as a result) a fascinating insight into how a Victorian novel took shape.< Less
