============
Edgar Fawcett (May 26, 1847 – May 2, 1904) was an American novelist and poet.

Although he was a prolific writer (Wikipedia lists more than sixty titles in his bibliography), and successful in his time, his works are mostly forgotten today.
The majority of his writings seem to be “mainstream” fiction and poetry, but he occasionally stepped into weird fiction, with such novels as “Solarion” (about a dog given human intelligence), “Douglas Duane” (on scientific body-switching), and “The Ghost of Guy Thryle” (astral projection as a means of interplanetary travel).

============
The Ghost of Guy Thyrle, by Edgar Fawcett (1847-1904), was first published in 1895. This ebook is in the public domain worldwide, because the author died more than 100 years ago, and it was published prior to 1926.
