Williamson, Thames

Tagged: Author

Working name of US screenwriter and author Thomas Ross Williamson (1894-1961) who over a prolific career published some work of genre interest, beginning with The Man Who Cannot Die (1926), set in the eighteenth century, about an elixir that gives Immortality at a cost. Against the Jungle (1933), set in Africa, and The Flint Chipper: A Boy's Story of England in the Stone Age (1940), are Lost Race adventures written for boys. Beginning at Dusk: An Interlude (1935) is a competent ghost story, very mildly racy (see Sex) after the manner of Thorne Smith. [JC]
