Forrest, Henry J

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1823-1899) UK compositor, printer's reader, journalist and author of an early sf Utopia, A Dream of Reform (1848), which tamely introduces the usual visitor to a mildly socialist planet designed on anti-industrial lines. The book is thus a vague precursor to the work of William Morris. [JC]

born Bermondsey, London: 1823 [baptized 13 April 1823]

died Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales: 4 October 1899
