John Griffith, "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney; January 12, 1876 - November 22, 1916) was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone, including science fiction.
Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories- To Build a Fire, An Odyssey of the North and Love of Life. He also wrote about the South Pacific in stories such as The Pearls of Parlay and The Heathen, and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.
