VT Author: E. Thayles Emmons


Vermont-born author Edwin Thayles Emmons was born on this day in 1882 in Woodstock, Vermont. Growing up in the village of Taftsville, he graduated from High School in 1899 and went on to work as a journalist.

His claim to fame in the science fictional world is a single short story published in the May 1923 issue of Weird Tales Magazine. The story, “Two Hours of Death”, was published under the name E. Thayles Emmons. It seems that this would have been a hobby, with only another (non-genre) credit to his name.

Emmons died in May 1971 in Geneva, New York.
