(1839-1919) German editor and author, usually on military matters, whose Future War novel, Der Weltkrieg – Deutsche Träume (1904; trans J H Freese as The Coming Conquest of England 1904), does not anticipate World War One very precisely, though the Near Future conflict envisioned is worldwide, with Britain losing in India and at home against an alliance that groups France, Germany and Russia into an irresistible force. Aetherio, eine Planetenfahrt ["Aetherio: A Trip to the Planets"] (1909) is a Fantastic Voyage tale whose protagonists travel not only to Mars, Venus and the Moon, but also into the Hollow Earth.
