Ghost Stories

The Author's and Writer's Who's Who (1934) mentions the following chap:

BRUCE, Rev. Archibald Reid Turing. b: London 1873. e: Burneys Naval Acad, Gosport, Tonbridge Sc & Salisbury Theo. Col. m: Dorothy Elisabeth Crick. Publ: Scourge of the Moors. c.t. Blue Mag. s.s.: Boys' books, ghost stories. Rec: Archae. a: Sixpenny Handley, Salisbury.

Anyone come across his ghost stories?

    Interesting to note that the byline on his sole book publication (according to The British Library Catalogue), the historical novel The Scourge of the Moors (London: Sampson, Low & Co., 1923) is "H. Turing Bruce". [A book with the same byline called Winning His Knighthood: or, The Adventures of Raoulf de Gyssage came out in the U.S. in 1929, from L.C. Page in Boston. I suspect this is merely a retitling of the British edition.] No record of ghost stories under either name, alas.
