(? -? ) US author of Under Pike's Peak; Or, Mahalma, Child of the Fire Father (1898), in which a Lost World is discovered Underground, in the caverns beneath Pike's Peak. The inhabitants are dwarfish but Telepathic, their queen, Mahalma child of the Fire Father, is a "normal" woman who gives her body to the protagonist's rival, in order to save her people, and therefore dies. Her spirit lingers, wistfully. [JC]
