(? -? ) UK author whose Future War tale, The Fate of the Triple Alliance: A Jeu d'Esprit (1890 chap), roughly predicts the pattern of European alliances whose clash helped launch World War One, though he was less successful in his prediction of the Weapons used, which include electric bayonets and paper armour. This may be due to the author's Satirical bent. [JC]
