D'Argenteuil, Paul

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of the unidentified US author (?   -?   ) of The Trembling of Borealis (1899), set in America after a war with Cuba and featuring a revolt of the working classes which brings about a welfare state and the disenfranchisement of blacks. Given the socialist – albeit racist – bent of the tale (see Politics; Race in SF), the author's Pseudonym can be read as a play on words, linking wealth to work. [JC]
