Publisher Description

Later described as "the lost giant of American science fiction," Edward Page Mitchell wrote many science fiction and fantasy short stories in the 1870's to 1890's, nearly all of which werepublished anonymously in the The Sun daily newspaper of New York.Mitchell was editor-in-chief of The Sun and was a member of the Pulitzer Prize Board for many years.
