(1883-1974) US author whose The Wonderful Voyages of Cap'n Pen (coll 1929) comprises a set of tales told within a Club Story setting, and clearly fantasticated. "The Voyage of the Good Ship Luna" ostensibly carries the Captain to the Moon by Rocket, but a misfire may make this outcome doubtful. Most of the tales are nautical. [JC]
