Gibbon, Edwarda

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

Pseudonym of New Zealand (?) author Charles J Stone (?   -?   ), whose The History of the Decline and Fall of the British Empire (1884 chap) is a Near Future tale in which a shift in the Gulf Stream causes a savage Climate Change to afflict Britain; eventually, after a century or two, the monarchy moves shop to New Zealand. The tale is told as by a native of that land (see New Zealander), and ends in a contemplation of the ruins of London Bridge. [JC]
