Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

Pseudonym of Andrew James Fraser Blair (1872-1935), Scottish author, journalist and editor, resident in India for many years; his sf is all set in the Near Future, and focuses on issues of governance. In 1957 (1930) he describes how air power overcomes the Second Indian Mutiny (see Pax Aeronautica). In its sequel, Governor Hardy (1931), he focuses on the ensuing international intrigues, which lead to Future War. A third futuristic novel, The Great Gesture (1931), optimistically depicts the events leading to the founding in 1941 of a United States of Europe. [JE]
