Charles 'Granville' Hosken (c. 1867 - c. 1930) was an English businessman, writer, criminal, and publisher. He was more commonly known under the pseudonym 'Granville.' Granville/Hosken, publishing as Stephen Swift, issued the literary magazines Oxford and Cambridge Review and the Eye Witness and published some of the works of Oscar Wilde. In October of 1912 he was convicted of embezzlement and bigamy, was sent to prison, and his publishing assets seized. Granville/Hosken is an elusive figure of dubious personal character who seems to have been involved in a number of publishing and business scams in London. His association with 'The South' is unclear.
