Pseudonym of the unidentified US author (? -? ) of "The Battle of the Wabash: A Letter from the Invisible Police" (October 1880 The Californian), an extremely early Yellow Peril story set in 2081, at which point the natural White rulers of America are sufficiently outnumbered by Chinese immigrants, who have long overrun California, that their attempt to cleanse the land fails utterly. Lorelle's story appeared almost simultaneously with Pierton W Dooner's Last Days of the Republic (1880), the first full-length Yellow Peril novel in the US. [JC]
