Bachelder, John

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1817-1906) US inventor and author of A.D. 2050: Electrical Development at Atlantis (1890) as by A Former Resident of "The Hub", one of many "answers" to Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward: 2000-1887 (1888). In this early example of the Sequel by Other Hands, fifty years have passed, the world has decayed with the exception of the breakaway land of Atlantis in America, where an electricity-driven right-wing Utopia, governed by businessmen with powerful new Weapons, fights off the socialists, as well as an Invasion from China (see Yellow Peril). Bachelder should not be confused with the painter and Civil War historian John B Bachelder (1825-1894). [JC]
