Harry Stephen Keeler:
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
Harry Stephen Keeler (b. 1890 - d. 1967) was an American electrical engineer, editor and author of more than 70 crime-and-detection thrillers whose bizarre complexity the "webwork novel", in his own phrase featuring irrelevant stories-within-stories and reliant on a multiplicity of staggering coincidences, led to his being cherished by fans for other than literary reasons. He was most active in writing from the mid-twenties to the mid-fifties.
