Conway Hugh

Conway, Hugh, the nom-de-plume under which Frederick Fargus won considerable popularity as a writer of sensational romances. Born in 1840, and brought up to business at Bristol, Fargus wrote in 1883, for Arrowsmith's Annual, a highly melodramatic story entitled Called Back. The success of this clever but by no means elevated specimen of fiction was extraordinary. Next year the author produced Dark Days, a far less striking performance. In 1885, whilst A Family Affair, which showed signs of higher artistic capacity, was appearing in the English Illustrated Magazine, Mr. Fargus was seized with typhoid fever and died at Monte Carlo. A few posthumous sketches of moderate merit have appeared since his death.
