(1865-1956) US minister and author, whose Sermons by the Devil (coll 1904) contain elements of Christian fantasy, and whose Life in a Thousand Worlds (1905) is a mildly fictionalized Fantastic Voyage through our solar system and beyond; the protagonist examines a large number of societies (some Utopian, some Dystopian) on a variety of planets (see Archipelago), the civilization of Mars being excoriated in particular for having established a cruel class system. The journey then extends into interstellar space, including Heaven, which comprises a net of stars. [JC]
