(1880-1959) Canadian poet and author, best known for the nonfantastic novel Grain (1926). Of some sf interest are Dennison Grant: A Novel of To-Day (1920), in which the unpacking of a Utopian land settlement scheme infers a movement into the Near Future; and The Copper Disc (1931) features a Mad Scientist who plans to rule the world through the powers contained in the eponymous object.
