(?   -?   ) UK author known only for his sf Near Future novel, The Emperor of the Air (1910), in which the Invention of a superscientific Airship, lifted by a vacuum-creating engine, leads to the destruction of the air fleets of the world, and the brief imposition of a Pax Aeronautica whose rulers speak Esperanto, an experiment abruptly terminated when the airship crashes (at the very tip of Mount Everest) during a hazardous exploration of the globe.
