Seymour, Miranda

(1948-    ) US writer of some tales for younger children, and of several fantasies for YA and adult readers. They include: Count Manfred (1976); Medea (1982), which conflates three first-person accountings of the myth; The Vampire of Verdonia (1986), a Vampire tale for YA readers; and The Reluctant Devil: A Cautionary Tale (1990), a wry Supernatural Fiction. A nonfiction study, A Ring of Conspirators: Henry James and his Literary Circle (1988), usefully locates Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Ford Madox Ford and others in the Edwardian context. [JC]
