Richard Marsh - Bernard Heldmann


At the end of last year I was able to write up a little piece of research I had been doing into the mysterious case of Richard Marsh, author of the Victorian cult classic, The Beetle. The piece stirred some interest and I was delighted to hear from Robert Kirkpatrick, a researcher whose primary interest was in Marsh in his original incarnation as an author of ripping yarns for boys. Robert took my little piece of research and managed to uncover significant extra pieces of information. A short summary piece of his work has now appeared in the April edition of The Bookdealer (above) with a kind acknowledgment and mention of this blog.
