(? -1960) US author of regional tales mostly set in South Dakota whose last novel, The Moon Is Made of Green Cheese (1929), is of sf interest for its portrait of an astronomer (see Astronomy) responsible for some controversial findings and who engages in discussions with a mentor. His friends describe this mentor as an imaginary being; the astronomer's own description, if taken literally, would define his mentor as an Alien. [JC]
