Wilkins, Lura M

Entry updated 10 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1879-1963) US author whose awkwardly mixed-genre "Over There": Chronicles of an English Engineer "Gone West" (1935) is presented as its author's stenographic recording of reminiscences of the horrors of World War One on the part of a British engineer. His narrative also describes his discovery of an Underground Utopia, whose entrance is on the dark side of the Moon, and which features advanced Technology and Telepathy; later the engineer visits a Near Future New York, and revels in the vertical growth of that City.
