Wilkins, Lura M

Tagged: Author

(1879-1963) US author whose awkwardly mixed-genre "Over There": Chronicles of an English Engineer "Gone West" (1935) is presented as its author's stenographic recording of reminiscences of the horrors of World War One on the part of British engineer. His narrative also describes his discovery of an Underground Utopia, whose entrance is on the dark side of the Moon, and which features advanced Technology and Telepathy; later the engineer visits a Near Future New York, and revels in the vertical growth of that City.
