Most of his work is nonfantastic, though he wrote at least two Posthumous Fantasies [for fuller entry on Kummer, and on Posthumous Fantasy, see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below]. The Second Coming: A Vision (1916 chap) with Henry P Janes (1868-?   ) is a World War One fantasy in which Christ is reborn to appeal for peace in an audience with the Kaiser. [JC]
