John Holmes is a pseudonym for Raymond Holmes Souster (1921 – 2012) , a Canadian poet "whose writing career spanned over 70 years. More than 50 volumes of his own poetry were published during his lifetime, and he edited or co-edited a dozen volumes of poetry by others. A resident of Toronto all of his life, he has been called that city's 'most loved poet'. Robert Fulford wrote of Souster in 1998: 'You can't read the history of Canadian poetry without encountering him, yet somehow he remains obscure. His legendary shyness has created, over five decades, a curious form of anonymity: he's at once omnipresent and invisible.'"
(Wikipedia)

He published three works of fiction, only one under the name "John Holmes."
