(1884-1928) UK author and caricaturist in whose one novel of sf interest is Menace from the Moon (1925), a Scientific Romance which rather casually blends Alien Invasion and Lost-World tropes, as descendants of a Moon colony, established by the seventeenth-century European Inventors of Space Flight, mount a remote-control attack on Earth with heat-Rays. They do so because their messages have been ignored, as twentieth-century technology is not yet up to receiving them. The tale contains references to the works of Bishop John Wilkins, whose The Discovery of a World in the Moone (1638) is here seen to have supplied a rationale for the original journey. Lynch's anthology, A Muster of Ghosts (anth 1924; vt The Best Ghost Stories 1924), is competent. [JE/JC]
