Tagged: Author

(1823-1897) US physician and author whose sf novella 1931: A Glance at the Twentieth Century (1991 chap) describes the Near Future in generally Utopian terms; America has solved its racial problems (see Race in SF), and solved other problems as well, including Pollution, through the application of high Technology. Perhaps unseriously, it is suggested that Canada has welcomed incorporation into the great republic (see Imperialism). [JC]
