Science Fiction Technology and Ideas

He was born to a farming family in Waterville, Washington. Burks served in the United States Marine Corps in World War I. He began writing in 1920. After being stationed in the Caribbean and inspired by the native voodoo rituals, Burks began to write stories of the supernatural that he sold to the magazine Weird Tales.

After leaving the service, he continued writing for the rest of his life.
