(1890-1936) US playwright and author whose Cupid Napoleon (7-28 January 1928 Argosy All-Story Weekly as "Luckett of the Moon"; 1934) purports to be a Planetary Romance but turns out to be a hoax perpetrated by Napoleon Bonaparte Luckett in the Near Future; the intended Satirical effects of the tale are seriously jumbled. The Phantom in the Rainbow (30 December 1928-2 February 1929 Argosy All-Story Weekly; 1929), about a man with paranormal powers, is marginal as sf. [JE/JC/DRL]
