Collins, Dale

Tagged: Author

(1897-1956) Australian author, mostly of sea stories, sometimes as by Stephen Fennimore or Michael Copeland. Of marginal sf interest are Lost (1933) and Ah, Promised Land (1946), which is a Robinsonade. Race the Sun (1936), perhaps more interestingly, features an advanced aircraft capable of stratospheric flight which circumnavigates the world (see Transportation). [JC]
