The interestingly named Edison Tesla Marshall was born on August 28, 1894 in Rensselaer, Indiana and died on October 29, 1967 in Augusta, Georgia. He grew up in Medford, Oregon and attended the University of Oregon from 1913 to 1916. He was a novelist and short story writer, mainly of historical fiction and science fiction, and a big game hunter. His popular adventure stories appeared in Harper's Bazaar, Good Housekeeping, and Reader's Digest. He won the O. Henry Award in 1921. His novel The Isle of Retribution was made into a silent film of the same name in 1926.
