Blurb: Clement Lindley Wragge (F.R.G.S., F.R.Met Soc., Etc) (18 September 1852 – 10 December 1922), was a meteorologist born in Stourbridge, Worcestershire, England, but moved to Oakamoor, Staffordshire as a child. He set up the Wragge Museum in Stafford following a trip around the world. He was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and in 1879 was elected Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society in London. To the end of his life, he was interested in Theosophy and spiritualism and during his tour of India, met with Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, founder of the Ahmadiyya movement in Islam who had claimed to be the Mahdi, the messianic redeemer awaited by Muslims. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle sought him out in New Zealand to ask for his views on spiritualism before writing ‘The Wanderings of a Spiritualist’ in 1921. After training in law, Wragge became renowned in the field of meteorology, winning the Scottish Meteorological Society’s Gold Medal and years later starting the trend of using people’s names for cyclones. He travelled widely giving lectures in London and India, and in his later years was a reliable authority on Australia, India and the Pacific Islands.

One of his books, “Experiences Of A Meteorologist” will be republished by ASJ Publishing later in 2015 in Ebook and Print (POD), and his Biography is set for release in 2016.

Many thanks go to Pioneer Books who reprinted “Experiences Of A Meteorologist In South Australia” in 1980, and who have allowed us to republish my great-great grandfather’s work.

His great grandfather was Clement Lindley Wragge (the guy who started the trend of using people’s names for cyclones).

From a teenager he started to read the workings of master horror writer H.P.Lovecraft and found a love for horror writing himself. He didn’t start to develop that love for writing until 1989, when he was living in Victoria.
