Smith, H Allen

Tagged: Author

(1907-1976) US newspaperman and author, mostly of humorous sketches (from about 1922) and books, often for the Saturday Evening Post. In his first sf novel, Mr Klein's Kampf, or His Life as Hitler's Double (1939), a Jew takes over from his look-alike, Hitler, and spoofishly declares Germany to be the new Zion. The Age of the Tail (1955), also a comic Satire, depicts the effect on a Near-Future world of all children being born with tails. [JC]
