(1858-1920) US lawyer and author of The Liberators: A Story of Future American Politics (1908), in which two young men – an idealist who derives his passion for justice from the example of Abraham Lincoln, and his enormously wealthy friend – work to transform a Near Future America into a land where all will be treated with fairness; all Transportation companies, and other potential trusts, are nationalized (see Politics). Most of the tale is set in New York, with long passages typical of the muckraker novels influential in the first years of the twentieth century. Stevens's Feminism was further expressed in An American Suffragette (1911), which is nonfantastic. [JC]
