Garrett Putnam Serviss (1851 – 1929) was an American astronomer, popularizer of astronomy, and early SF writer.
He was born in upstate New York and majored in science at Cornell University. He took a law degree at Columbia University, but never worked as an attorney. Instead, in 1876 he joined the staff of the The New York Sun newspaper, working as a journalist until 1892 under editor Charles Dana.
Serviss is known today primarily for his SF novels Edison's Conquest of Mars (1898) and The Second Deluge (1911), although he wrote other SF works.
