EoF JC "(1911; full text ed Richard Dalby 1986), which confusedly evokes the downside of Goddess imagery through the eponymous Shapeshifter which possesses a glamorous lady (or vice versa), and attempts to infect a large cast with its venomous, accursed, erotic allure (> Worm/Wyrm)."

SFE3 JE/DRL "The Lair of the White Worm (1911; cut 1925; vt The Garden of Evil 1966), centres on an antediluvian and malignly intelligent serpent-like Monster obscurely linked to a secretly murderous woman; for the Lamia theme, see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy; this novel was very freely adapted for Ken Russell's film The Lair of the White Worm (1988)."

Campbell is sometimes credited as "Phyllis" by publishers, as well as by libraries and at Project Gutenberg, etc. She is not identified at the Library of Congress. For instance, see the title page of Twenty Years' Experience as a Ghost Hunter by Elliott O'Donnell (which mis-spells the writer's name too).

As of June 2019 there are two temporary identities (main pages) for her at WorldCat, with headings as Phillys and Phyllis. But WorldCat contains records of more works by Campbell, not yet linked to either identity.

dnf VIAF, and thus LCCN or ULAN

Campbell, Phillys Vere [2] at WorldCat 2019-06-10 only in library records of the catalogues of two London exhibitions, 1911/12 OCLC Fiction Finder (as Phyllis) and 1913/14 OCLC Fiction Finder (as Phillys).

One illustration is clearly signed on three lines at lower left, "Phillys Vere Campbell". plate facing p.384 last of frontispiece + 3)

While not so clear, two illustrations facing page 101 and f.p. 141 are clearly signed "Phillys" rather than "Phyllis", although the last two lines are not clear.

At Project Gutenberg (and the Open Library, relying on the same source publication) she is "Phyllis", known only for Ebook #50775, which apparently contains a transcript of the original title page London: Heath Cranton --undated, with 1916 Author's Note
