Cloudsdale, Colonel. Colonel Cloudsdale was created by “Keble Howard,” the pseudonym of John Keble Bell, and appeared in a number of stories in The Novel Magazine in 1920, beginning with “The Window Over the Moat” (The Novel Magazine, Feb. 1920). Colonel Cloudsdale is a demobbed Colonel who has retired from the Army. He has a “wonderful Eastern ring” which grants him the ability to vanish at will, and he uses it to solve crime as an amateur detective, but only for those who appeal to him—he doesn’t hire himself out.
