(1884-1964) UK entrepreneur, pilot and author of two sf novels: Children of the Sun (1934), in which ultra-short waves from a distant star, when projected onto a screen, work as a Time Viewer, giving contemporary humans visual access to Hernando Cortez's savage conquest of Mexico; and The Treasure of Atíl (1934), a Young Adult tale whose young protagonists use various Inventions – including an advanced helicopter and a gold-finding machine – in their search for Aztec treasure.
