(?   -?   ) US author of The Light from Sealonia (1927), a Lost World novel set in a deep valley near the North Pole; two opposing civilizations inhabit the cleft, both boasting high Technology, Utopian Sealonia containing fair-skinned abstemious descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel, Nodolia containing dark-skinned hedonists descended from Cain and his ilk (see Race in SF; Religion; Sex). Thomas Alva Edison clearly subtends the great Sealonian inventor Nosede (see Invention), who helps defeat the Nodolians with his electric Rays. [JC]
