(? -? ) US author, not to be confused with the American writer Ludwig S Geissler, or with several Germans with the same name; his Looking Beyond: A Sequel to "Looking Backward" by Edward Bellamy, and an Answer to "Looking Forward" by Richard Michaelis (1891), is a Sequel by Other Hands which, with some ingenuity, treats the return to 1888 of Julian West, Edward Bellamy's original protagonist, as a dream, while also treated Richard Michaelis's negative sequel to Looking Backward as a nightmare. In the real 2000 which West inhabits, Inventions are made constantly, the Utopia thrives, and Communications are instituted with Mars. [JC]
