Jones, Samuel. Samuel Jones was created by Volney Mathison and appeared in twelve short stories which were collected in The Radiobuster (1924).

Samuel Jones is a freelance radio operator, and a good one, but he’s desperate for a job, so when an agent for the Alaska Codfish Company offers Jones a job on Unga Island, Alaska, Jones takes it. Unfortunately, Unga Island is a frontier town far more violent than most towns in the Wild West, and Jones is soon embroiled in a variety of dangerous situations, including what might be an encounter with Martians. (Alternatively, Jones might have been injected with drugs and hallucinated the encounter).
