Sydney Fowler’s 1932 collection of short stories contains The Rat, in which a country doctor discovers a serum for immortality. The story originally appeared in the March 1929 edition of Weird Tales and in Creeps by Night (1931; ed. Dashiell Hammett)

Dalrymple observes that auditors, like doctors,

must be privy to many secrets.

One prominent bookkeeper-littérateur, he points out, was S. Fowler Wright, who was among many other things a biographer of Scott and co-founder of the Empire Poetry League.

Dalrymple comments:
