94 page sf novel, first serialised in Argosy in 1919.

''US journalist, newspaper editor and author who was active with sf stories in magazines like The Argosy, where several novels appeared. Only BETWEEN WORLDS (11th October- 8th November 1919 Argosy Weekly; 1929), one of his weakest, reached book form; it is a semi-juvenile tale that begins on a dystopian Venus and concludes on Earth, with female protagonists plotting to conquer the world. Of more interest are ''On the Brink of 2000'' (January 1910 Argosy) and ''The Treasures of Tantalus'' (11th December 1920 - 8th January 1921 Argosy All-Story Weekly), which feature devices to see anything happening anywhere in the world; the morality of these is discussed, though at no great length. The Flammarion-inspired ''After a Million Years'' (18th January - 15th February 1919 Argosy) comprehends a dystopian Earth, an Edenic Jupiter, mad scientists, telepathic powers, aliens and the virtual extinction of humanity. Smith was a sometimes capable writer whose ideas tended to outclass his fiction'' (Richard Bleiler/The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction edited by John Clute, David Langford, Peter Nicholls and Graham Sleight.
