Icon made by Freepik from


(?   -?   ) US author in whose Earth's Empress and Victoria: A Romance of Two Queenly Souls and of a Revolt in Africa Against a Benign Government (1901) two narrative strands, perhaps unconvincingly, intertwine: a lightly fictionalized dramatization of the Boer War (1899-1902) and a Lost World tale set in the mid-Atlantic, where a Utopian civilization has adapted to life Under the Sea, where life according to the precepts of John Ruskin (1819-1900) are followed. The earlier Interlude to Earth's Empress; Or, the Arraignment of Boer and Celt: A Story of an African Revolt Against a Benign Government: Anglo-Saxon Destinies, or Boer and Celt at the Bar (1900 chap) seems to present, perhaps in an earlier form, the African passages of the full tale. Nothing of the author, excepting her sex, has been discovered. [JC]
