Edward Augustine Wyke-Smith 1871-1935
British writer and mining engineer. Wyke-Smith published eight novels, four of which were for children. Bill of the Bustingforths (1921) is, like The Marvellous Land of Snergs (1927), an delightful anti-fairy tale. Of Wyke-Smith's adult novels, The Second Chance (1923) is science fiction, concerning an old man rejuvenated to his youth by a drug made from ape glands.
