(1856-1934) US reformer and author whose arguments about the Utopia – focused on a reiterated argument that all income should be spent in the year of its earning – shape his obscurely told fictions. Two are of some interest: '96: A Romance of Utopia (1894; vt Utopia: A Romance of Today 1894) [for subtitles for this and the next title cited, see Checklist], whose protagonists travel by balloon to a Lost World in Africa, where the state of Lukka exemplifies Rosewater's theses; and Doomed (1920) as by Marian and Franklin Mayoe, which is set aeons earlier in an Underground Atlantis, which suffers under Dystopian constraints, and Monsters who attack from the depths.
