Acworth, Andrew

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1857-1895) UK author – according to Darko Suvin, a barrister named Andrew Oswald Acworth – whose sf novel, A New Eden (1896), set 100 years in the future, features the escape of two depressed protagonists from the decaying republican UK, which has suffered from Devolution of the human stock, to an egalitarian but hidebound Island Utopia which fails to cheer them up – despite electric factories, birth control and euthanasia.
