(1851-1938) UK translator and author, an atheist and anarchist in politics who, disaffected with his native land, lived abroad from around 1912. His two works of some sf interest are Sacrifice; Or, the Daughter of the Sun (1920), a tale with Lost Race implications, and the more ambitious Vishnu; Or, the Planet of the Sevenfold Unity (1928), in which a distant planet, whose inhabitants are divided into seven Sexes, is visited.
