Excerpt from The Red Light of Mars: Or a Day in the Life of the Devil

The author of The Red Light of Mars is now in his thirtieth year, having been born on January 7, 1884, in Howard County, Maryland. His father was a Baltimore merchant and insurance broker, who, in his turn, had a Confederate blockade runner for father and an officer in the English army for grandfather.

His mother sprang from an old French middle-class family, which had to emigrate from Dijon after the Edict of Nantes.
