Wallace, Edgar

▪ British writer
in full  Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace 
born April 1, 1875, Greenwich, London, Eng.
died Feb. 10, 1932, Hollywood, Calif., U.S.

      British novelist, playwright, and journalist who was an enormously popular writer of detective and suspense stories.

      Wallace was the illegitimate son of an actress and was adopted as an infant by a Billingsgate fish porter named George Freeman. He left school at the age of 12 and held a variety of odd jobs until he joined the army at 18; he served in the South African War until 1899, when he became a reporter. He returned to England and produced his first success, The Four Just Men (1905), which he sold outright for a small amount.

      Wallace practically invented the modern “thriller”; his works in this genre have complex but clearly developed plots and are known for their exciting climaxes. His literary output—175 books, 15 plays, and countless articles and review sketches—was prodigious, and his rate of production so great as to be the subject of humour. His literary reputation has suffered since his death. His works include Sanders of the River (1911), The Crimson Circle (1922), The Flying Squad (1928), and The Terror (1930). His last work was part-authorship of the film script for King Kong, which was finished shortly before his death.
