Sandes, John

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1863-1938) Irish-born journalist and author, in Australia from 1887, noted for a determinedly patriotic, Christian form of Australian nationalism; he also wrote as by Don Delaney. His first novel, Love and the Aeroplane: A Tale of Tomorrow (1910), is set in a distant Near Future Australia transformed by advances in Transportation, with monorails and other innovations. The story itself is a somewhat congested romance, built around the treatment of horses as pests whose extermination the government eagerly espouses. [JC]
