Hill, William Boyle

Tagged: Author

(circa 1861-1953) Irish author, resident in Australia, whose novel A New Earth and a New Heaven (1936) is of exceedingly moderate sf interest for its advocacy of a garden-city subtopian future (see City), but which comes somewhat to life on its protagonists' visit to a Lost World – in the heart of Australia – whose inhabitants are in touch with Mars.
