Pseudonym of UK lawyer and author Henry Chartres Biron (1863-1940) for King Solomon's Wives; Or, the Phantom Mines (1887), a Parody of H Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines (1885), of sf interest specifically for the spoof description of how the protagonists travel in a Balloon equipped with a device which keeps it stationary while the world turns. This pseudonym has sometimes erroneously been ascribed to John de Morgan, himself the author of several Haggard parodies. [JC]

Sir Henry Chartres Biron

born Lympne, Kent: 10 January 1863
