SNAITH, J(ohn) C(ollis)
   UK writer, mostly of historical novels, whose first sf novel, An Affair of State (1913), is set in a NEAR FUTURE England raddled by social strife, whose The Council of Seven (1921) describes a totalitarian DYSTOPIA, and whose Thus Far (1925) depicts the creation of an enormouslypowerful, telepathic SUPERMAN by the application of various rays, chemicals and, as E.F. BLEILER states, "glandular extracts from a missing link"; Bleiler further suggests that JCS may have published an earlier work describing the discovery of this link, but no such work has yet been unearthed.
