Robertson, E Arnot

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

Working name of UK author and broadcaster Eileen Arbuthnot Robertson (1903-1961), best known for such non-sf novels as Four Frightened People (1931), whose protagonists find themselves making their way through a tropical jungle. It was written to contrast with her earlier Scientific Romance, Three Came Unarmed (1929), which, in a striking attack on modern civilization, exposes three enfants sauvages from the Far East to contemporary England; they are in fact examples of homo superior (see Evolution; Superman), but England destroys them.
