Van Vorst, Bessie McGinnis

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1873-1928) US social reformer and author, mostly in France from around 1900, who usually wrote as Mrs John Van Vorst, but also as by Esther Kelly; her early nonfiction was mostly written in collaboration with her sister-in-law Marie Louise Van Vorst (1867-1936). She is of some sf interest for Magda Queen of Sheba: From the Ancient Royal Abyssinian Manuscript [for full title see Checklist below] (1907) as Mrs John Van Vorst, a Lost Race tale set in Africa, and featuring King Solomon as well.
