(1863-1944) US author of several novels. Of sf interest is Sweepers of the Sea: The Story of a Strange Navy (1900), written with the assistance of Robert M Yost, in which two young Incans – from a Lost World where Incan science has evolved – resolve to create the United States of Incaland and to dominate the Southern Hemisphere as the USA does the Northern. With the aid of Incan lore and treasure they create a navy of impregnable ships armed with an array of new Weapons, defeat the British in a brisk Future War, make peace with North America, and prepare to rule.
