Anson, Captain

Entry updated 22 September 2020. Tagged: Author.

(1846-1905) UK author, in the Royal Navy 1859-1896. His Future War tale, The Great Anglo-American War of 1900 (1896 chap), warrants modest interest for the worldwide scope of the conflict and for the UK's destruction of San Francisco, which inspires an inventive American response (see Edisonade; Inventions) and the surrender of Canada. For verisimilitude, the tale should perhaps have been set several years further into the future. [JC]

Captain Charles Vernon Anson

born Penzance, Cornwall: 4 February 1846
