Pseudonym of the unidentified US author (?   -?   ) of The Dancing Imps of the Wine; Or, Stories and Fables (coll 1880), which contains some fantasies, and Adventures of an Atom: Its Autobiography, by Itself (1880), a Tale of Circulation made up of a series of interwoven anecdotes narrated by the eponymous entity, which it declares of itself (see Great and Small; Scientific Errors) "is the last and final subdivision of matter". This atom – more a sprite than an sf embodiment of pantheistic speculation – enjoys Immortality and a capacity to dwell within a large range of larger entities, mostly human. Sententious lessons are delivered. [JC]
