Thomas Anstey Guthrie, writing under his pseudonym, F. Anstey, was one of the most popular authors of humorous fantasies of the late Victorian period and the early twentieth century. His work is among the best of a particular type of British fantasy, in which the supernatural intrudes into the everyday with comically disastrous results. His works include VICE-VERSA (1882), THE BLACK POODLE (1884), THE TINTED VENUS (1885), and A FALLEN IDOL (1886).
