Appleton, Jane Sophia

Tagged: Author

(1816-1884) US editor and author of regional texts, focused primarily on Bangor, Maine; Voices from the Kenduskeag (anth 1848) with Cornelia Crosby Barrett, assembles poems and stories for a local audience, some fantastical; much of the material seems to be directly by Appleton. Of sf interest in the book are "Vision of Bangor in the Twentieth Century" and "Sequel to the Vision of Bangor", in which a distant Near Future Bangor is seen as a Utopia in which the sexes are equal (see Feminism).
