Of more direct sf interest is The Great Red Dragon; Or, the Flaming Devil of the Orient (1909) as by Lord Chester, a Yellow Peril tale set in the Near Future, focusing first on an unsuccessful Chinese-Japanese Invasion the Christian West, and then on a great Disaster where the Sun is transformed into a world-embracing ring.
