John Kendrick Bangs

Author Code: AJKB

Born: May 27, 1862 - Yonkers, New York, USA

Educated at Columbia University and Columbia Law School, Bangs was the editor of the University's literary magazine and in 1884, left law school to become the editor of Life magazine. While there, he contributed poems and numerous articles to the magazine. In 1888, he joined the Harper's group and the following year became the editor of the Department of Humour for Harper's Bazaar, Harper's Magazine and Harper's Young People. In 1899, he also took on the role of editor for Harper's Weekly. In 1901, he joined the New Metropolitan magazine and became its editor in 1903. In 1904, he became the editor for America's foremost humour magzine of the time, Puck. From 1906, he focussed his attention on the lecture circuit and was always in demand. Many of Bangs's novels were supernatural fiction with a humourous slant and included A House-Boat on the Styx (1896), The Pursuit of the House-Boat (1897), Ghosts I have Met and Some Others (1898) and The Enchanted Type-writer (1899). Many of his novels were best-sellers and Bangs was hugely successful and very popular in his time. His other works include Three Weeks in Politics (1894), The Idiot (1895), Napoleon, Mr. Bonaparte of Corsica (1895), A Rebellious Heroine (1896), Paste Jewels (1897), The Dreamers (1899), Narrated by Bunny (1905), Alice in Blunderland (1907), The Genial Idiot (1908), Echoes of Cheer (1912) and From Pillar to Post:Leaves From a Lecturer's Note-Book (1916).
