(1862-1900) US poet and author of a Lost Race novel, Beyond the Palæocrystic Sea: Or, the Legend of Halfjord (1895), set in the permanent (ie palaeocrystic) ice around the North Pole, where an extremely non-monogamous Norse culture seems to thrive, though hints of a Hollow Earth are never fulfilled, and they must hunt to eat. Much of the book is devoted to a potted historical romance about ninth-century Norway. [JC]
