GARNETT, Edward
(1868-1936)
   UK writer and man of letters, son of Richard GARNETT, husband of Constance Garnett, father of David GARNETT. His greatest fame was as an enormously influential publishers' reader for several UK firms; among the writers whose careers he significantly helped were Joseph CONRAD, E.M. FORSTER and W.H. HUDSON. The sf SATIRES assembled in Papa's War (colldated 1918 but probably 1919) reveal a freethinking, controversial, clear-headed teller of tales and allegories.
