von Neupauer, Josef

Entry updated 31 July 2023. Tagged: Author.

(1806-1902) Austrian politician and author whose sf novel, Österreich im Jahre 2020 ["Austria in the Year 2020"] (1893), describes Mr Forest's journey to Austria in 2020, guided by Julian West from Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward (1888). Austria, now a monarchical Utopia, is run on communist lines, with women's rights established to a degree (see Feminism); Vienna has been transformed into the kind of symmetrical City frequently encountered in narratives about designed worlds. A coercive breeding regime (see Eugenics) keeps the population healthy. [JC]
