(1880-1958) French-born academic and author, in UK from around 1906 to 1915, when his advocacy of Ukrainian rights (sometimes as by Bedwin Sands) was deemed potentially treasonous; then in US. Of sf interest are two collections: Planetary Journeys and Earthly Sketches (coll 1908; vt On the Loose 1910), which includes four connected tales involving travel by Telepathy to other planets, where various forms of life (see Life on Other Worlds) are described, some of them descended from ancient Greeks who had earlier flown there; and The Deuce and All (coll 1910), which is mostly fantasy, though one trip to another world is undertaken in one tale.
