Arthur St. John Adcock was a prolific British man of letters with diverse talents. Born in London and privately educated, he worked as a law clerk for several years before quitting to become a full-time writer. With poor health and no connections, he became successful as a sort of journeyman author, writing reviews, poetry, essays, articles, short fiction, and anything he could imagine. He was perhaps best known as an editor, and for his gritty, realistic portrayal of London's Cockney East End.
