Working name of the unhyphenated Emeric Hulme Beaman (circa 1865-? ), UK author about whom little of interest is known. The feats of the mysterious protagonist of his Ozmar sequence, Ozmar the Mystic (1896) and The Prince's Diamond (1898), reflect his long immersion in Theosophy; The Experiment of Doctor Nevill (1900) features the eponymous Mad Scientist who transplants part of a criminal's mind into the decent cerebellum of a Lord, making a Frankenstein Monster out of a member of the nobility; but a further transplant redeems all.

born Cuddapah, East Indies: circa 1865
