Pseudonym of UK author Reginald William Malyon Gibbs (1878-1942), who under his own name published numerous mathematics references and textbooks. His sf novel as by Anson, When Woman Reigns (1938), transports its protagonist to first the twenty-sixth and then the thirty-sixth century. Author and hero take a rather dim view of these two periods, because in both men are subservient to women (see Feminism). [JC]
