Sidney Hobson Cortier (1904-1974) studied pedagogy at the University of Melbourne and became a teacher for the rest of his working life, though he wrote some stories and got them published. Retiring at the age of 61 in 1965, he became a crime fiction writer who was greatly inspired, according to his own words, by Arthur Upfield. Like Upfield’s, all his novels are set in Australia, but unlike Upfield, Courtier is one of the classic crime fiction authors in Australia who is little known or commented on nowadays.
