(?   -?   ) US author, possibly pseudonymous, whose only publication seems to be The Pirates of the Sky: A Tale of Modern Adventure (1915), a competent Young Adult tale in which an intrepid pilot and a resourceful newspaper reporter track down and are instrumental in defeating an anarchist conspiracy whose plans hint at the Pax Aeronautica: utilizing a giant armoured black hovercraft with a 200 foot wingspan to devastate the cities of America – a goal they partially accomplish – the conspirators plan to rule the world, after robbing it blind. Unfortunately the usual volcano destroys their tropical redoubt. [JC]
