COBB, Weldon J.
(? -?)
   US businessman and writer who specialized in dime novels (DIME-NOVEL SF), working mainly c1866-c1902. Tales of sf interest include A Wonder Worker, or The Search for the Splendid City (1894 Golden Hours; 1907), which combines travel and invention after a fashion typical of the genre, and two EDISONADES, At War With Mars, or The Boys who Won (1897), and To Mars With Tesla, or The Mystery of Hidden Worlds (1901), the latter featuring, in place of Thomas Alva Edison, his great rival Nikola Tesla (1856-1943). Amusingly, the lad who carries most of the action goes by the name of Young Edison.
