Pseudonym of UK art publisher and author George Grandison Millar (circa 1860-1913), whose The Gold Makers (1911) is a thriller involving the Transmutation of metals. In real life Millar was a shareholder of the Scottish metallurgical company Kosmoid Ltd [see links below], established in 1904, which planned to produce mercury and perhaps gold by transmutation of lead; The Gold Makers is seemingly a roman à clef transplantation of Kosmoid's tangled affairs from Scotland to Boston, Massachusetts.
