As well as bookbinding, etching and the recently discovered, "Making Picture Frames in Wood", the Original Inspiration for Manly Banister writes (wrote) sci-fi.

I kid you not.
Also: "He dashed into the Lavatory where sparkling streams of cold water cascaded and splashed upon healthy youth.". Scroll down to actually read some! (Extra points to anyone managing to use phrases from this in fic....)

He also wrote for Weird Tales along with (hiss! spit!) August Derleth. I am quite disturbed to find he lives in Kansas. I am trying to work out how he can both be 36 and have had stories published in the 1940s. Something suspicious is going on here. Manly Banister: Gentleman Timetraveller?

That's... that's not very Manly at all, really. Maybe he is confused by his own name and that is why he writes Man with a capital letter?

Also, I am starting to think that this is a viable use of five dollars. I have found real copies of Conquest of Earth for purchase, which I think is the abridged version, but how could I resist the lure of Extra Descriptive Passages and tension?
