Short biography
Charles Spain Verral wrote the first of the 6 Brains Benton books under his own name. After that, it seems unclear if he is the author. The subsequent books are under the George Wyatt name and there seems to be no agreement amongst sources: either he wrote the first one and then the later ones were under a house pseudonym for Golden Press, he wrote all of them but switched to a pseudonym, or he was going to turn it over to other authors but was unhappy with the manuscripts and rewrote them before publication. All three versions of the history exist.
Under his own name, Charles Spain Verral wrote a number of books, beyond the Brains Benton series (with the disputed history of authorship).
