Clemence Housman

Clemence Housman

Clemence Housman (23 November 1861– 6 December 1955) was an author, illustrator and activist in the womens’ suffrage movement. She was the sister of A. E. Housman and Laurence Housman. She was born in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.[1] Her novels included The Were-Wolf, Unknown Sea and The Life Of Sir Aglovale De Galis.[2] She was also a leading figure in the Suffragette movement.[3]

HP Lovecraft said of the Were-Wolf that it: “attains a high degree of gruesome tension and achieves to some extent the atmosphere of authentic folklore”.[4]
