F. Anstey

a.k.a. Thomas Anstey Guthrie

Author Code: ETAG

Born: Aug. 8, 1865 - London, England

Died: Mar. 10, 1934 - London, England

Educated at King's College, London and Trinity College, Cambridge, Anstey studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1880. In 1882, he published Vice-Versa, a humourous supernatural story which was very popular and led him to conclude that he would rather write for a living. His reputation was firmly established in 1885 with the publication of The Tinted Venus. He then joined the staff of Punch and had many successful years there. He continued to write humourous stories with a supernatural accent until around 1915 when he began to dedicate his time to translating the works of Moliere. Anstey was a great influence on subsequent humourists, including Thorne Smith of 'Topper' fame. Anstey's other works include The Giant's Robe (1884), A Fallen Idol (1886), The Pariah (1889), Under the Rose (1894), Puppets at Large (1897), The Brass Bottle (1900), Winnie, an Everyday Story (1909), In Brief Authority (1915), Humour and Fantasy (1915) and A Long Retrospect (1936 Posthumous).
