DWYER, James Francis
(1874-1952)
   US writer, most of whose books - like The White Waterfall (1912), The Spotted Panther (1913) and the stories assembled in "Breath of the Jungle" (coll 1915) - are Oriental fantasies of little interest, though Evelyn: Something More than a Story (1929) translates the prurient primitivism of the earlier books into the future, and Hespamora (1935 UK) combines elements of DYSTOPIAN satire with an incursion of pagan deities. The Spillane series, The Lady with Feet of Gold (1937 UK) and The City of Cobras (1938 UK), returned to JFD's old haunts.

   Other works: Cold-Eyes (1934).
