Phinneas Smite was an author of horror tales, until his own stories scared him to death. He was buried in the Ooga Booga Cemetery where his headstone reads:
"The strange author Phinneas Smite
Liked to lurk in the shadows at night.
He'd write hideous tales
Of green monsters with scales
Until one day he just died of fright."
Phinneas Smite is a character who's headstone can be seen in King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride.
