A pseudonym probably of Charles E Dean (? -? ), author of Do We Live Again? Man the Molecule, Phantasmal Thanatology [for full subtitle see Checklist] (1922), which combines the Afterlife Fantasy [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] with Space Flight, as a French scientist embarks on an interplanetary journey described in perfectly orthodox sf terms. After landing on the planet Eterno, he meets famous men and women from Earth's past, and conveys their messages back home, giving humans hope (as the subtitle indicates) for life after the illusion of death.
