Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edward Lucas White (11 May 1866 - 30 March 1934) was an American author and poet. Born in Bergen, New Jersey, he attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, in which city he did most of his work. From 1915 until his retirement in 1930, he was a teacher at the University School for Boys in Baltimore. He wrote a number of historical novels, including The Unwilling Vestal (1918), Andivius Hedulio (1921) and Helen (1926); but he is best remembered as a fantasist, for stories such as "The House of Nightmare" and "Lukundoo" These short horror stories were based on his own nightmares. Two collections of his short fiction were published in his lifetime, The Song of the Sirens (1919) and Lukundoo and Other Stories (1927). He died by his own hand on 30 March 1934, seven years to the day after the death of his wife, Agnes Gerry. His last book, Matrimony (1932) was a memoir of his happy marriage to her.show more
