(1862-1915) US journalist and author, usually for younger readers; the Jack Lorimer series, all as by Winn Standish, focused on sporting feats. Of sf interest is An Outland Journey (1896), in which a young lad finds himself in "Fairyland", which takes the form, strictly (if absurdly), of a rule-bound Utopia. But it is all a dream. [JC]
