(? -? ) UK author, possibly the working name of a person of Armenian descent, of The Star of the Sea: A Historical Novel (1897), a tale which if published a century later would have been described as dizzyingly Equipoisal: the protagonists of the tale, beginning in Persia in the sixth century BCE, finally achieve romantic union after travels Underground, Under the Sea, to the Moon, and into the deep past and to Victorian England via magical Time Travel. A vision is also provided of a future era, not specifically dated, where a Utopia, combining sage Religion and advanced Technology, flourishes. [JC]
