(1864-1933) US author whose first work of sf interest is "A Hundred Thousand Dollar Trance" for The Black Cat in 1896, though it is in fact about a hoax involving hypnotism; The Treasure of the Ice (1898) is a Lost Race tale set at the south pole, where a civilization of waif Greeks has flourished, partly due to Eugenics; there is little argument in the text about such matters, however, as it is almost entirely given over to romantic intrigues.
