Wyman, L P

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1873-1950) US author, mostly of boys' books, including nonfantastic series like The Golden Boys and The Lakewood Boys sequences; he is of sf interest for a late Airplane Boys series, The Hunniwell Boys sequence beginning with The Hunniwell Boys in the Air (1928). Their adventures in an aeroplane powered by electricity are modestly extravagant, and their exploit in The Hunniwell Boys' Nonstop Flight Around the World (1930) remains impossible without refuelling.
