DOWDING, Henry Wallace
(?1888-?1967)
   US writer who was most active in the 1920s. His sf novel, The Man from Mars, or Service, for Service's Sake (1910), is occupied for much of its length with its protagonist's search for a MCGUFFIN document, but shifts in its later moments to be a long description, on the part of the protagonist's employer, of his time on MARS, which planet is small, quite close to Earth, and UTOPIAN.
