(? -? ) US author of one sf novel, Sown in the Darkness: A D 2000 (1941), which depicts the Near Future as a time of constant War and decline; the author's presumption (see Race in SF) that the white peoples of the world must arm themselves against a "rising tide of color" may have some part in the disappearance of his tale of dreadful warning, despite Twiford's ample descriptions of new Weapons and other Inventions. After the victory of the white races, segregation is strictly enforced. [JC]
