Was an early contributor to Wonder Stories, having crashed a quarterly with a short-short far back in the pleistocene age. Published a volume of poems a decade ago which received rather gratifying reviews in London Times, Boston Transcript and New York Tribune. Hopes eventually to live it down. Is spare-framed, and a bit shy, and single."
